Turf Trivia went up 7lb for landing a similar grade handicap at Sedgefield but was outpaced when coming to grief in a better contest at Catterick last month. Hotgrove Boy has a 7lb penalty for his all-the-way victory at Sedgefield last week though that was no test at all as half the fences were omitted due to low sun. One In A Row appeared suited by a longer trip last time and is still a maiden as is Tom Sang, who is making his debut over fences. HAVE YOU HAD YOURS recorded his first success at Hexham in November and ran well for a long way over a longer trip there a couple of weeks later. He's had a break and with his rider claiming 7lb he looks the one to be on.
