Donald McCain has won two of the four renewals so point-to-point winner I Need Gold is expected to go well on his hurdling bow. But he has MYSTEREE to beat in this. The latter has gone close on a couple of subsequent occasions since winning at Perth in September and is preferred to Just Cameron, who also carries a penalty for his earlier win over hurdles at Bangor. Bumper winner Bhakti never figured on his hurdling bow back in May, but Lucky Cody has a more recent debut over timber under his belt and could make the frame.
