The J P McManus-owned More Of That makes his racecourse debut today but his retained rider, AP McCoy, rides the Warren Greatrex-trained WESTWARD POINT which is a pointer in itself. The five-year-old beat Woodpole Academy by eight lengths in a Worcester bumper in October and the runner-up won easily over hurdles at Newcastle on Saturday. Utopian had some decent form in bumpers last season and made a promising start over timber when fourth at Lingfield three weeks ago. He shouldn't be far away here.
