It will take a good performance to see off FINE RIGHTLY despite his penalty for an impressive success here last month. The form of that race has worked out well and he can follow-up. Cleve Cottage ran very well when runner-up to Standintheband at Carlisle in December though that form hasn't worked out so well. Island Confusion was a very easy winner between the flags at Cregg in October while the four-year-old Hidden Discounts has plenty of allowances and should be noted on his debut.
