Downpatrick winner Miro took too keen a hold over 2m4f at Sedgefeld recently and can better that performance if more settled with a hood fitted here but it's hard to get away from very useful Flat-racer MIRSAALE, who was quite impressive over C&D on last month's hurdling debut.[Chris Wilson]

Very useful Flat-racer who has been back on song since rejoining Keith Dalgleish this year and created good impression when winning very easily over C&D (good) on hurdle debut 17 days ago; should be very difficult to beat.

Not an instant success over hurdles for new stable this season but scored at Downpatrick (2m2f, good) a month ago; can give Mirsaale a race if in similar form today but was a shade disappointing when only third over 2m4f at Sedgefield last time; hood now added.

Positives can be drawn from his two bumper runs here this season but significant improvement required now switched to hurdles; sports first-time hood.

Fair on the Flat but refused to race on consecutive outings in that sphere this summer and was about 64l behind Mirsaale when finishing last over C&D on last month's hurdling debut.

0-15 on the Flat; runner-up off a basement mark over 1m last month but has daunting standard to aim at on hurdling debut.
