John Reel sets a decent standard in the first division of this bumper having won at Ffos Las before finishing third in better company at Newbury. Dance was second in a mares' race on the Polytrack in February and winning pointer Going Concern was third on his debut under Rules at Ffos Las and can't be ignored. But one or two of the newcomers catch the eye on breeding in this and we fancy FOND MEMORY to make a winning start as he's a half-brother to smart bumper performer Dark Glacier and hails from a yard that can get them ready at home. Robbers Roost is related to a winning hurdler and is another worthy of a mention.
