HALLINGHAM finally opened his account with a cosy win in better company at Sandown. A 9lb rise looks justified as the runner-up has subsequently won and Jonny Portman's charge can go in again. Ragged Robin got his head in front stepped up to 1m4f at Kempton but is not sure to appreciate this shorter distance while course and distance winner With Hindsight failed to cope with a 4lb rise back here last time. Precision Five has tumbled down the handicap and could bounce back at any time.
