Bull And Bush showed promise in bumpers and was only beaten a length on her hurdles debut at Fontwell in December. She's the one most likely to trouble FREE THINKING. Though well beaten in a Listed contest last time, the latter had beaten a couple of subsequent winners at Ludlow earlier and clearly goes well fresh. Cinnomhor ran very well for a 150/1 chance when only beaten three lengths at Sedgefield in December but that may have been a fluke and none of the others make much appeal on what they've shown so far.
