Hexham second Switched Off doesn't find much off the bridle and still looks too high in the weights. Royal Deal turned in a shocker at Wetherby last week while all the evidence suggests this is too far for The Fonz. Cheat The Cheater dropped away quickly at Uttoxeter last time in a race in which Hassadin was pulled up after being forced off the track. The latter might be worth another chance while Wheres The Hare could go close if fully wound-up. GRADUATION NIGHT runs over hurdles for the first time in two years but has won off a 7lb higher mark over fences and Richard Johnson looks a significant jockey booking following a break - he gets the nod.
