LAMB OR COD won a competitive novices' handicap at Cheltenham in April and followed up by a distance at Fakenham. A hat-trick beckons for Philip Hobbs' gelding, who looks one to follow. The mare Luci Di Mezzanotte is also improving, however, and easily won a slowly-run race over 2m6f here last time. She should chase home the selection as Abbeygrey didn't shown much over hurdles after winning an Irish point-to-point at the end of 2013.
