On form, this looks a match between DINEUR and Dunowen Point with preference for the former who has found only one too good in both starts over timber. Alan King's five-year-old deserves a change of luck and may enjoy a fitness advantage over his likely market rival, who has started favourite in all three runs under Rules but was again disappointing when last seen at Catterick in January. Character Actor has finished tailed off in both starts in Ireland since the turn of the year and Flowerdew appears to be going backwards. Tarn Hows won a bumper here in February, however, and has some scope.
