Findlay's Find has won 16 times between the flags but has been expensive to follow under Rules and looked one-paced when a beaten favourite at Chepstow last month. Glidewell and Lord Louis are other prolific point-to-point winners but neither has any experience over these stiffer fences and both are approaching the veteran stage. TIME GENTLEMEN is only eight and hails from the yard that won this last year. He's been a progressive sort in point-to-points this year and has the beating of Chief Heckler on recent form. We'll give him the vote to upset more exposed types.
