FLEMENTIME, a useful sort in bumpers, only found the potentially-useful Legacy Gold too strong on her hurdling debut at Uttoxeter and was then only six lengths behind Glens Melody in a Listed hurdle at Warwick. She will surely have too much for these. Brave Vic is making steady progress and was only beaten a length at Plumpton a month ago. He looks the one for forecast-backers ahead of El Indio, who is flattered by his form figures, and former pointer Power Of God. Spyder did win on heavy ground on the Flat but this will be his first run of any description for 465 days and Leith Hill Legasi may also need more time.
