MILO MAN has run twice on heavy ground and won easily both times including when making all on his hurdling debut at Carlisle. This is a bit trickier but he has scope for better things and will take some beating. Uhlan Bute landed a Southwell maiden after arriving from France then ran an excellent race at Sandown. He started favourite for a handicap at Cheltenham last time but never got into the action. Ashes House ran very poorly at Towcester last time but had several fine runs previously and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him bounce back. Hint Of Mint ran very well at Wincanton last time but is untested on ground this heavy.
