With his stable going so well, Bring On The Judge is one to keep an eye on as his best runs came in very heavy going. The Gossmoor Yank is likely to do better when sent chasing and he's been off for two years but Pavillon Bleu has returned to score after a long absence in the past so this soft ground performer can go well. Master Overseer gained the first success of his career over fences off a 30lb lower mark, however, and may now be a few pounds high back over timber. Vin De Roy was making good progress when last seen in February and can go well from a lowly mark but REBECCAS CHOICE is given the nod as he was having his first start for almost a year when staying on strongly over 2m4f here last month and will have come on for the run.
