SURE THING found things happening a bit too quick for him dropped back to 2m last time. He'd finished runner-up at Bangor over today's trip before that and can go close with a similar effort. The Society Man also has claims on his second to Mister Wiseman over these fences and Stitched In Time posted a better effort at Perth on his latest start finishing ahead of Attycran. Cara Court has lost his way since making the frame at Sedgefield in May.
