Hi Note has done well for Sheena West but she hasn't looked a natural chaser in three runs so far over the larger obstacles - she's also disappointed on the Flat recently. Leath Acra Mor can build on a solid effort behind Minella Reception at Ffos Las last week but Border Station's previous runs over fences suggest he should be treated with caution. RENDL BEACH could be interesting eased in grade as he was once held in high regard. He still has time on his side and he'll get every assistance from the saddle.
