BALLYFOY is better known as a chaser but he is able to get in off a decent racing weight without penalties so we are prepared to chance him against the field. Jurisdiction has done very little wrong this year and Tony McCoy's presence aboard the three times Kelso winner is sure to make him popular. Eastern Supreme would not be concerned by any softening of the going overnight. Paul Nicholls had a number of runners in at the five day stage and Rebel Rebellion, who won a bumper for Charlie Mann at the princely price of 1-8 is his nomination for this race. Time For Spring may have needed his Stratford reappearance though had beaten a decent field in a point-to-point at Bennetsbridge in February. Uncle Keef was a modest two miler on the flat and the blinkers are back on for today.
