Several of these have been chasing, with mixed results, and the likes of Minella Class, Royal Charm and Court In Session are probably best watched until showing signs of a revival. David Pipe saddles three but Fiulin needs to learn to settle while The Pier and Raslan have both been absent for a few months. Jetnova has gone back up in the weights since finishing third at Haydock and Native Gallery is 7lb higher than when second to Volador at Uttoxeter. First Fandango and Pateese may also be in the handicapper's grip but KANGAROO COURT finally appears to have been given a chance by the assessor as he's eased Emma Lavelle's charge a couple of pounds since he finished third at Doncaster last month. As that was his first run over hurdles for nine months, improvement can be expected and he gets the nod here on ground that will suit ahead of bottom weight Dancing Dude.
