On The Feather only found one too good in a seller at Towcester in the spring and again in a better race at Market Rasen last month. Chilbury Hill wins his fair share but seems happier over fences nowadays but there are possibilities about Argaum back in a seller as he's been taking on better opposition of late. PINDAR made all in a conditionals' race here last week under Conor Shoemark and escapes a penalty. If he's allowed an easy lead again, a follow-up could be on the cards. Naledi is another recent course and distance winner but looks high enough in the weights now.
