Worcester winner Pearls Legend floundered under a penalty at Fontwell last time and recent C&D winner Tealissio has 7lb extra to carry as a consequence. SOFTSONG may take advantage as he found only Valdez too good at Huntingdon last time and looks set to open his account over hurdles. Point-to-point winner Musical Knight is worth noting on his debut under Rules while Flat winner Anton Dolin will have benefited for the experience of a hurdling debut at Ludlow last month. Best Director and Canon Row are others to keep an eye on in the betting on their first start over timber.
