GET BACK IN LINE was easy to back when runner-up to stablemate Mr Watson on his racecourse debut at Plumpton. The winner took a Class 2 handicap at Cheltenham last Saturday to advertise the form and he should be another winner for Jonjo O'Neill and A P McCoy. This looks a decent contest, however, as Morning Royalty and Special Catch are both chasing hat-tricks and Dreams Of Milan and King Of The Wolds got off the mark last time. Special Catch may prove the pick of that quartet as one of his victories came over this course and distance, though he is giving 10lb to the selection.
