BALLYCULLA carries a penalty for last week's victory at Exeter but has plenty of scope and gets the nod to follow-up. Makethe Mostofnow will go close on the pick of his form but is unreliable and Qalinas makes more appeal as he'll have come on for a recent outing at Chepstow. One In A Milan didn't get very far on his return to action at Sedgefield but scored at this track at the start of the year while Awaywiththegreys is preferred to Captain Cardington back over the smaller obstacles today.
