Veteran Kames Park isn't out of this off his current mark and won over C&D at this time last year when beating Strike Force. Co-incidentally, the latter was beaten a head over track and trip last Friday by THECORNISHCOWBOY who carries a penalty in this but has scope for further progress. On The Feather was scoring over hurdles in October but has a poor strike rate on the Flat and has never won on the all-weather while Whiepa Snappa has a bit to find with the selection on latest running. Mohair has a shout if forgiven her latest below-par run at Kempton but Stanley Rigby has done all his winning on the Fibresand at Southwell.
