Destination Aim is best watched following a long absence and Pertemps Network also returns from a beak but the remainder have all been in action lately. The heavy going may have been to blame for FOLLOW THE FLAG's modest showing at Pontefract on Monday. Providing he's fully recovered, Alan McCabe's charge could be the one to beat in this with David Bergin taking off 7lb. Brockfield was more like his old self at Ayr last time and is preferred to Hydrant and the frustrating Mistress Of Rome of the others.
