Esteem is better handicapped over hurdles than fences and could be interesting in this low-grade handicap, despite top weight. Noble Perk was well backed on his handicap debut at Chepstow and should be capable of better while the market should be monitored closely for any interest in Giant Sequoia, who won at Clonmel last year when trained by John Supple. FUTURE PROFIT has yet to manage a place in seven starts but was the subject of a massive gamble at Market Rasen in March. He's 6lb lower now and, all the better for a run at Folkestone, could recoup losses here. Master Of The Sea and Residence And Spa may need this but have more scope than most.
