Bobs Lord Tara is one of only two with experience to have shown anything previously. He kept on in the closing stages when fourth at Wetherby, though will almost certainly do better when having a set of hurdles to jump. Laraghcon Boy is the other but, as a former pointer, is another who might do better over timber. We'll take a chance on the Trevor Hemmings-owned GREAT TRY who is by Scorpion out of a lightly-raced French mare who stayed 1m4f. He won't have to be anything special to make a winning debut.
