GOOD ORDER was well beaten over fences here last month but had won on a previous visit. This will be his first run over hurdles since 2011 but, even on the limited evidence available, he should still be too good for these. John Mor was entered in a maiden hurdle at the track last night and Quickasyoucan has the better form, having gone close in a novices' handicap at Ayr two runs ago. Superior Command is a points winner but is making his debut over timber today.
