Get It On won over fences at Carmel in May but showed he was no slough over hurdles either when scoring at Uttoxeter last month. Off The Record continues on an upward curve and is on a four-timer. But he only won by a neck when completing his hat-trick last time and has gone up another 5lb since. TARADREWE made giant strides last season and will be all the better for her comeback second to Midnight Oscar at Uttoxeter. She was beaten seven lengths but is 7lb better off here and can turn the tables on the top weight and go one better. Possol was second at Newton Abbot last time but is a thorough stayer and will need a strong gallop to get involved.
