Sir Lynx ran his best race so far over fences when second at Fakenham. Riddlestown was pulled up at Huntingdon earlier this month but was placed over a longer trip here in December when SMART CATCH unseated his rider. Tony Carroll's charge needs to jump better but will have had plenty of schooling in the interim and can make amends. Me And Ben has only had one start over fences so far and is open to improvement while another mare, Possibly Flora, has shown some ability and Shannon Spirit could figure with a clear round.
