Catterick third Hartside isn't out of this under his regular amateur pilot. Mission To Mars may do better now handicapping but Focail Maith doesn't appear to be improving and Broughtons Bandit has his first run since July last year. SCOTSBROOK LEGEND sprang a big surprise at Leicester in January but could be called the winner a long way out and may be capable of overcoming an 11lb rise in the weights with Peter Carberry again claiming 3lb. Belle De Fontenay is a course and distance winner but rarely scores outside of selling company.
