Surprise Plumpton winner Wither Yenot doesn't look badly treated on his handicap debut but Riddlestown reverts to hurdles off a high enough mark and Go Amwell tends to reserve his best for Huntingdon. BONNET'S VINO just scrambled home at Catterick earlier this month but the second is a decent novice and Pam Sly's mare looked to be crying out for further at the North Yorkshire track. She gets the chance to prove her stamina here. King Ozzy is leaving it late to try a trip of this magnitude but Mistral Reine can't be ignored after a fair fifth over 2m6f at Ascot.
