Ergo Sum was brought down at the first at Doncaster last time and will be hoping for better fortune here. Daliance again gave the impression he needs further when second in a lady amateurs' race at Huntingdon last week, though this is a stiffer track. No No Charlie appears to have lost his way but Yes Daddy could figure as he got bogged down in the mud on his reappearance at Taunton. GOOD OF LUCK came good over hurdles at the eighth attempt at Warwick. As that was a conditionals' race, he can race off the same mark here and should take all the beating again.
