COUSIN KHEE won one of these bumpers at Kempton last month by four lengths and Hughie Morrison's charge is taken to go in again. Nether Stream has plenty to find with the selection on latest running and Call Back makes more appeal having won a couple of times over hurdles since landing a bumper back in 2011. Peintre Ster hasn't taken to timber but is a dual bumper winner on Polytrack and preferred to both the returning Spanish Treasure and Royal Native.
