Perth third Call of Duty is among a number of these who have been running on the Flat. Oddsmaker looks a light of former days but Spin Cast won under Harriet Bethell at Carlisle in August and is entitled to improve on his only start so far over timber. KODICIL landed a 2m handicap at Ripon in August and followed that up with a second over even further at Pontefract. He's always looked the type to make a hurdler and gets his chance to prove that theory today. Moon Trip also has winning form on the level but hasn't impressed in a couple of runs to date over obstacles.
