NEXT EDITION was narrowly beaten at Uttoxeter on his last start over hurdles and has been in action on the Flat. He looks well enough treated to gain his second success over timber though Endeavor is always a threat having won nine times already over hurdles including on this track. Millers Reef is a couple of pounds out of the handicap but still well treated if anywhere near his best while Abbey Garth and Talkin Thomas give Nicky Richards a strong hand with preference for the latter, who looks the type to do well this season.
