Big Society has started favourite in three of his four runs over hurdles but only managed one win so far and his Wetherby conqueror, Seebright, has let the form down since. Giveitachance did well to beat a big field at Doncaster after a break but this will be his first try at this level while Kellys Brow has had a few months off and neither Pinkneys Prince nor Raduis Bleu have shown enough so far to merit serious consideration. IFYOUSAYSO was well backed to win a decent contest at Doncaster in December but didn't appear to stay the longer trip. He can make amends in this off a decent mark as Ballylifen has had plenty of chances and No Duffer has disappointed prior to his third at Leicester.
