Settledoutofcourt is a couple of pounds out of the handicap but that shouldn't make much difference and he looked in need of this trip when runner-up here last time. Irish raider Hidden Horizons won a very moderate event at Hexham and hasn't been done any favours in the weights but Any Given Moments would have to be considered if forgiven a poor effort at Kelso last time. Lucinda Russell's pair at the top of the handicap are both winners over the track and trip but LUCEMATIC is given the nod as she's been crying out for this trip and was battling on over 2m5f here last time.
