This should be interesting as none of these are particularly proficient at their fences. Enchanting Smile put in a particularly mulish display at Wincanton nine days ago while Zhukov was never travelling when last at Plumpton on Monday. THE INFORMANT made several mistakes when only fifth at Chepstow three weeks ago but had earlier been on his best behaviour to score at Southwell when Morestead was well beaten. We'll give Seamus Mullins' charge another chance as Benny The Swinger is hardly prolific and continues to look a shade high in the weights.
