Wreningham handles the Polytrack but seems to save his best for Southwell these days and SHERJAWY makes more appeal here. He's been back on a winning mark for some time but his recent efforts suggest he's ready to strike again including his latest third in a higher grade handicap here last week. Forty Proof is another who looks likely to be winning soon off his current mark and Invigilator showed a bit more when third over 6f here a week ago. Howyadoingnotsobad returns from an absence but Raul Da Silva's claim allows him to race off only a 2lb higher mark than when successful at Wolverhampton in September.
