Great Oak, a Grade 3 winner over fences, landed the odds at Hexham in June but was then well beaten in a three-runner race at Ffos Las. We are going to take her on with ME AND BEN, who is more consistent and didn't do a lot wrong in a handicap over a longer trip at Fontwell last time. Carolina Wren and Dreams And Songs are likely to improve with experience while Magic Money is another with scope but Mini Muck was a long way behind the selection at Cartmel in August.
