DAWALAN has raced twice over track and trip and won last month's outing by eight lengths. He's taken to shrug off a penalty and go in again in similar underfoot conditions. Ivanhoe is also penalised for his victory at Ffos Las and has a stack to find with the selection on official ratings. Prince Khurram is an interesting newcomer to hurdling having won on the Flat in France and making his debut for Donald McCain here while Interior Minister is rated much higher on the level than the likes of Hurricane John and Astrum. Carry On Sydney has joined Oliver Sherwood and is another hurdling debutant to note.
