Thinger Licht almost won at Towcester last week but that looked a weak contest. AREA ACCESS would have won more easily at Taunton a week ago had he not hung towards the rails. He's learning with experience and, with Harry Bannister's claim negating his penalty, is fancied to follow up. Lord Landen is back over hurdles after unseating his rider at the first over fences at Leicester last week while On The Record has had a break since a disappointing favourite at Uttoxeter in November, though does still have some scope. It's difficult to make much of a case for the others.
