Flyman has drawn the inside stall having gone close over course and distance in October. The speedy Caspian Prince, soft ground Yarmouth winner Chooseday and Baby Strange all keep him company on that side of the track, while Joey's Destiny and Corporal Maddox are others who could go well from a single-figure draw. Even Stevens has won over 5f here though he's shot up the weights after a successful winter on the all-weather and Joe Eile, a prolific winner in Ireland, showed signs of a return to form last time on only his third start for John Quinn. CAN YOU CONGA won his maiden over course and distance before ending the season with victory at Newmarket. He's since joined Mick Easterby and looks to have decent claims with an apprentice taking 7lb off his back.
