Come On Laurie hasn't raced since making a winning debut at Plumpton last May but Drop Out Joe won a point-to-point in Ireland in November and can't be ignored. Brother Brian has the pedigree to do well in this type of contest and Six One Away is another newcomer to note, though we prefer LEMONY BAY. Oliver Sherwood's four-year-old is a half-brother to versatile pair Citrus Mark and Milgen Bay among others and will know his job.
