QUEDILLAC was very impressive when landing a decent contest between the flags earlier this month. It rarely pays to take point-to-point form too literally over regulation fences but Rachel King's mount also had a decent record under Rules a couple of years ago and may well be capable of going close in this. The danger may be Marky Bob, second over a similar trip at Bangor recently, though Ice Cool Benny and Vintage Class also have the past form to figure. Shootin The Breeze and Noble Ben look the pick of the remainder.
