Twice a winner over hurdles in soft ground last month, POCKET TOO returned to the level with a good effort at Catterick when beaten less than a length over today's trip. Vic Dartnell's charge gets the nod racing off the same mark here. Categorical also went very close over 1m6f at Musselburgh a week ago though he's yet to score in 21 starts on the Flat while Strikemaster is 5lb higher than his latest win in October for his reappearance. Roseairlie and Bocamix have both been winning over hurdles of late and could make their presence felt.
