Denis O'Regan is an interesting jockey booking for the veteran Bow School, who is capable of running well fresh. Flying Doctor should be winning again once the ground dries out while Streams Of Whiskey won here in October and War On was successful at Wetherby in October on just his second start over hurdles, though was pulled up there in January. Too Cool to Fool and Solis have place claims again but EASEMENT doesn't look badly treated on his best form and, with Grant Cockburn taking off a further 7lb, we'll take a chance on George Bewley's charge returning to form on a track he knows well.
