Red Jade and Shadows Lengthen are potentially decent recruits from the Flat but neither have been at the top of their game lately, while Speed Dating didn't show a great deal on his hurdling debut at Leicester. The penalised Gentleman Jeff looks opposable on his first start since finishing well beaten on the Flat at Naas in October, but Danceintothelight should be able to build on her Hexham win. Preference, however, is for DUNOWEN POINT who comes here off the back of a couple of decent efforts in bumpers and is sure to have been well schooled.
