Plenty in with a chance in this but Rolling Aces was due to run at Wincanton yesterday while Spirit River has yet to reproduce his form over hurdles since tackling fences. Sizing Santiago and Our Bomber Harris are closely matched on Newbury running while Mister Hyde got back to winning ways at Market Rasen and Brackloon High and Politeo should be winning soon. BUFFALO BOB is the senior runner here and has been below par so far this term. But this is his ground and a sharp 3m should be right up his street - he could go close at generous odds in a competitive contest.
