MCLLHATTON bolted up at Huntingdon when tackling this longer trip for the first time. He could be a decent prospect and is fancied to give the weight to Garryleigh, though David Pipe's charge did appear to enjoy the better ground when only beaten half-a-length at Ffos Las earlier this month. The others may be playing for places as Cladding has struggled since winning a novices' handicap here in March and Upton Oaks needing to improve again on his latest second at Exeter.
