Kangaroo Court can acquit himself well.
With pounds 16,000 to be shared out, those from the original entry of 20 who chose to stay away could have missed out on a recent payday, especially as bottomweight A Hit Is A Hit is out of the handicap.
A bold show from top-weight Sir Harry Ormesher would give a pointer to the World Hurdle chances of Oscar Whisky, as Alan King's hope was only three lengths adrift of him in a jumpers' bumper last time.
Northern exposure Noel Fehily would probably have been at Newbury today if he had not joined Emma Lavelle as stable jockey. He has a 30 per cent strikerate for the trainer since signing on the dotted line and Kangaroo Court bids to further cement the partnership when he encounters his favoured fast ground.
South of the border Allow Me ventures the furthest south from his home base in Lanarkshire on his 11th start. James Ewart's improver, who is tackling 3m for the first time, made a rare sortee outside Scotland when winning at Catterick last time.
Home from home Corkage makes his fourth start at Doncaster in his last five outings, a sequence that has yielded a victory and two places. Keith Reveley's hope was beaten just three parts of a length when runner-up over this trip last time.
What they say Alan King, trainer of Sir Harry Ormesher "He's won around Town Moor and the course should suit him. He showed he was running into form when an excellent second at Kempton and this is his time of year. If he runs well, he could join the Cheltenham team." Emma Lavelle, trainer of Kangaroo Court "I'm glad to see the ground has dried out as quick ground is the most important thing to him. He should get the trip and I expect him to run a big race."
Keith Reveley, trainer of Corkage "He likes Doncaster and this small field should suit, as it will keep him interested."
Donald McCain, trainer of Alderley Rover "He ran a bit better last time at Musselburgh, it's the right sort of ground and the right sort of race and it's not a big field for a decent prize."
