Maiden hurdle winner Forced Family Fun also won a handicap at Doncaster in January. Burdened with a dual penalty for those successes, he may find the weight concession to MANDY'S BOY beyond him. The latter needs to be forgiven a below par effort last time but has every chance on his earlier second at Warwick. A bad mistake put an end to Agreement's challenge at Kempton on his hurdling bow but he's not out of this with a clear round. King Muro, Secret Beau and Markami are newcomers from the Flat and ones to note in the betting.
