This isn't made any easier by having Flat race jockeys doing the steering. A chance is taken that Fergus Sweeney can keep the partnership intact in which case MISS EXHIBITIONIST can go one better than her latest second at Huntingdon. Rime Avec Gentil also has every chance on her recent placed effort at Uttoxeter but Lindsay's Dream remains 5lb higher than when winning at the same track back in June. Terra Bleu has a shout on his earlier second at Plumpton but it's been some time since winning chasers Rosoff or Bajan Sunshine scored over hurdles.
