NIGHT IN MILAN has progressed really well over hurdles and scored at Sedgefield in January. He's now on a mark of 120 and, as he's 8lb lower over fences, is looking well enough treated over the bigger obstacles to take this. Outlaw Tom's latest success at Hexham came over 4m and he needs a thorough test of stamina while the useful point-to-pointer Definite Appeal is still looking reasonably treated despite being raised 5lb for being beaten a short-head over this C&D last month. Quacity was having only his third start over fences when scoring over 2m5f at Ayr. He wasn't stopping that day and must be on the short-list along with Rebel Swing, who has been narrowly beaten on his last two starts and deserves a change of fortune.
