PUSH ME was the subject of good support when obliging at Perth in taking style last month, prior to which he'd scored in equally smooth fashion on the Flat at Ayr. He's clearly in great form at present and is the one to beat with the proviso that the ground remains good or better. Sleep In First, a winner of five races over six starts in the spring/early summer of 2013 over fences returned from a fallow period to land a Cartmel handicap hurdle just three days ago and looks the obvious threat if in the same mood here. Dynamic Dave continues to run consistently well and deserves a change of luck but was seven lengths behind the selection at Perth and a 6lb swing in his favour doesn't look enough. He is the each-way option though.
