Glencree was sent off favourite at Hexham last month but found one too good and probably needs to drop a few more pounds before getting his head back in front. HOUSE PARTY has only had two runs over hurdles but been placed in both and may have been let in lightly on his handicap debut. He gets the nod ahead of Chain Of Events, who has also been placed a couple of times lately, and last month's Towcester scorer Arkaim. Lindsay's Dream is back in form and looks the pick of the remainder.
