Trucking Along scored over 2m6f on an earlier foray to this track but is 10lb higher today. Akdam needed 2m4f to get his head back in front at Fakenham last month and Another Maite is upped in class after a string of placed efforts. Great Link followed up a win over timber with victory on the Flat at Wolverhampton and should go well, but Stormin Exit's recent success came in a seller at Musselburgh and this is tougher. FINAL ASSAULT came good in maiden hurdle over track and trip last month and he gets the vote with further progress expected from Lucinda Russell's charge now he's finally off the mark.
