Not Til Monday was a fair second to Edlomond at Fakenham recently and has obvious claims in a weak contest, especially boasting a 7-19 record over timber. He's clearly a major player with the champion aboard but we'll take a chance on THINGER LICHT. His fifth of 18 here behind Dalmo was a decent effort in the context of this contest, prior to which he just went down in a photo to Fidelor, also at this track. He descends into selling company for the first time and could be good enough if delivering something approaching his best. Galiotto also has claims on the best of his form and has been running nicely on Polytrack in low-grade affairs. However, he didn't really look in love with the hurdling game when returned to timber latest at Fontwell and is therefore passed over now.
