Red Skipper made little impact when dropped into this grade at Hexham last time and looks one to be wary of now but there is possibly still a little improvement in Belle De Fontenay, who was second in a mares' maiden hurdle at Fontwell before finishing last of three at Exeter. HUCKING HERO knows how to get his head in front where it matters, however, and didn't do a great deal wrong when runner-up to Baccalaureate at Uttoxeter last month. He can return to winnings way here as Pobs Trophy has plenty to find at the weights and Towcester third Mutajaaser looks a tricky ride.
