Formscan - CARDANO, who was rated 100 at his peak on the Flat, has to be of interest as he returns to hurdles at a modest level, and may well be able to use this as a stepping stone to bigger things throughout the winter. Copper Fox could be the one to give the selection a scare along the way if his jumping proves to be a little rusty, while Brian's Jet and North Parade are a couple of others boasting claims.
