Paul Webber's horses are back in form so Harris Garden should go well after a fair run behind Tominator at Bangor. Benefit Cut landed a Market Rasen bumper and will have been well schooled for his debut over timber but KAYLIF ARAMIS looks the one to be on. He would have finished much closer to the winner but for a last-flight blunder at Bangor last month and looks to have more to offer. Native Colony ran poorly at Huntingdon last time but had done much better there earlier and should get competitive.
