Letsby Avenue was fourth at Plumpton on his hurdling debut but we were more taken by LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN's run behind Dunlough Bay at Lingfield. The Ffos Las bumper winner was a little keen on his first start over timber but showed plenty of promise and should go close here if settling better. Fiddlers Bid made all in a bumper here last month and is another to consider if staying the extra while Ballytober, denied a run at Exeter yesterday, will strip fitter for his run here last month and Wychwoods Brook was sent off favourite when runner-up at Leicester. Sergeant Dick and Westaway have shown ability and can't be discounted.
