Verdict

GRUMPY MCGRUMPFACE shaped with abundant promise on his third hurdle start at Kelso last month, finishing with running left without being unduly punished. The step up in trip rates a definite plus on handicap debut and he's fancied to put up a bold showing. Last-time-out course winner Bullion Boss is feared, whilst Astute Boy and Style Nelson are also fancied to get involved.
