BLUE HERON made all in a Ludlow bumper then pulled too hard when a close third at Huntingdon. He's from a decent jumping family and this should be his game so he gets the vote. Bumper winner Mrs Jordan has been tackling longer trips and this could be more to her liking but Eaton Rock looked in need of more experience when well beaten by Big Jim at Towcester. When Ben When made a reasonable debut over hurdles at Ludlow but El Macca has been well beaten on both starts to date.
