Super Collider runs off bottomweight after being scheduled to tote topweight here last night and cannot be ruled out if taking in both contests. Cool Baranca landed a good Cartmel handicap last time for which she's been raised 10lb but nevertheless still makes considerable appeal. Satanic Beat has become a useful dual purpose performer and stuck on well when last seen, running a good second on the Flat at Ripon. He's clearly in good form. Kie may find things happening a little quickly off topweight as he takes in this hurdling contest after 14 successive runs over fences and MATER NIBBLES is the choice. The Crawford inmate has been highly tried on his last three starts, but remains open to improvement and should find this an easier task. Richard Johnson is an eyecatching booking for the Irish challenger.
