With many of these returning from a break, it might pay to follow the betting closely. Handsome Harry, The Big Freeze, Hunters Lodge and No No Bingo would all have decent claims if fully wound-up while there should be more to come from Redbridge Rebel. The lightly-raced Misstree Pitcher could also figure if her jumping holds up but Jonjo O'Neill has had no qualms about putting the five-year-old MY MATE VINNIE over fences just six days after he routed 14 rivals off this mark over hurdles at Uttoxeter. Regular pilot Maurice Linehan is excellent for his 7lb claim and his mount should take all the beating if the fences don't get in the way.
