Today's mixed card starts with a couple of all-weather bumpers and Magna Cartor will be fancied in the first of those. He's related to a couple of useful stayers on the Flat but Nicky Henderson's record in Polytrack bumpers at this course is surprisingly poor and UNCLE MUF looks a safer bet. The latter scored over track and trip last month and can follow-up despite a penalty. Molly Beag makes the trip over from Ireland and her dam is a sister to top-class chaser Captain Cee Bee while Double Dealites is related to a dual Polytrack winner and could also go well.
