MCGROARTY managed to win a point-to-point and a bumper by clear margins in Ireland last month and he warrants the utmost respect on his debut for a yard in good form at the moment. Hestina is an obvious danger given her two wins back in April but the Dan Skelton representative may struggle to give 5lb to the selection. Tred Softly is a newcomer to hurdling to note given the connections he represents.
MCGROARTY was impressive when winning a bumper in Ireland last month and makes plenty of appeal now starting out over hurdles for Dr Richard Newland. Hestina sets the standard on her 2 wins over hurdles in April and won't be far away. Tred Softly is also interesting on his jumps bow.
