A multiple winner over fences, YOU KNOW YOURSELF has only raced three times over hurdles. Back over the smaller obstacles with a conditional's 7lb claim further helping his cause, Sue Smith's charge can get the better of Big Society. The latter opened his account over timber at Exeter last month and should be thereabouts despite a penalty while Mister Bricolage showed some promise on his hurdling bow at the same track before coming a cropper a couple of hurdles from home. Chepstow bumper winner Seebright could prove next best as Wolf Shield could only manage a modest fifth on his first start over timber.
