FOX RUN was last seen over hurdles in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham. He can be forgiven his odds-on defeat in a jumpers' bumper on the Polytrack last month and is fancied to give the weight away here to Garryleigh, only second in a bumper here on his debut under Rules but a winner between the flags, and King Of Glory. The latter was fourth in a Towcester bumper on Boxing Day and has a bit of scope but may need today's experience. The others will struggle to get involved.
