MADE IN TIME fell in the Foxhunter Chase at Cheltenham but had run well for a long way and had earlier beaten Taunton winner Marty's Mission by six lengths at Ludlow. This is a good chance to get back on track. Buck Mulligan and Rob Conti would both go close on their best form but neither has produced that in recent runs. Nowurhurlin has been well beaten in his last two starts under Rules and this looks far too tough for Invisible Man while Commander Kev reappears after a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
