Court In Session has already won over the larger obstacles, at Hereford last May, but tries a new trip here under Rules, though did win over 3m between the flags. We're going to take him on with VINTAGE STAR, who has run well in both starts so far over fences. He was just outpaced by Tuesday's Leicester runner-up Wiesentraum over 2m3f at Doncaster last time when King's Grace dropped away tamely after disputing the lead on the first circuit. Neither Gin Cobbler nor Hollins managed to complete in a beginners' chase over C&D on New Year's Day and they have a bit to prove now.
