Duneen Point was returning from a lengthy absence when beating Sin Bin at Taunton and is only 5lb higher. But the longer trip could be a problem while Ruapehu carries a penalty for winning a novices' handicap at Wincanton, though his jumping was much improved. HE'S THE DADDY will have learned plenty from his chasing bow at Taunton and, with a 7lb claimer in the saddle, gets a tentative vote as Present To You has become disappointing. Health Is Wealth stays well and has been waiting for better ground so is preferred to Tickatack of the others.
