Petit Robin has solid claims back in handicap company. A close-up fifth to Red Merlin in the Grade 3 Swinton Hurdle at Haydock in May, he'll go very close with a similar effort but a chance is taken on STARLUCK. Well beaten in much better races such as the Kingswell and then the County Hurdle at Cheltenham earlier this year, he'll have come on for a recent outing and gets a speculative vote. Dan Breen also kept good company last term and he may get involved along with Ifyouletmefinish and Chesil Beach Boy, who landed a hat-trick over today's trip last season. Ingleby Spirit has place claims if taking part though his first preference is the 12.45 at Haydock today.
