Ferdy Murphy's string is in better form now and BADGERS RETREAT sprang a surprise at Sedgefield last month. The drop in distance may not be ideal but he can follow up against largely disappointing opposition. King's Grace has been placed three times over fences but was pulled up at Haydock last time, albeit in stronger company. Special Robon was third at Wincanton last time but rarely runs two races alike while Advisor looks a shadow of his former self nowadays.
