Placed in both points (on soft and yielding to soft) before winning on his bumper debut at Market Rasen (2m, good) in May; he's a likeable prospect but defying a penalty in this field may prove tough.

Verdict

The Sam Thomas-trained KATATE DORI is a half-brother to (among others) stablemate Shomen Uchi, who showed considerable promise in bumpers last season, and he earns the vote on his debut. There are several other interesting newcomers and narrow Market Rasen winner School Days Over could be vulnerable under his penalty. The betting could be informative regarding the Nicky Henderson pair of Immortal (second choice) and Ted Da Titan, as well as Goodwin and Highway One O Four whose trainer Chris Gordon has done very well in bumpers this season. The Paul Nicholls-trained filly Larchmont Lass is another to consider.[Ben Hutton]
