Mumgos Debut has disappointed hitherto whilst Trend Is My Friend receives plenty of weight from the top two but hasn't seemed to progress much since landing a Sedgefield hurdle last April. He's not ruled out but this looks to lie between the Irish pair of Howwoulduno and LISBON. Both were scheduled to run here on Tuesday night but it's the Griffin charge that receives the vote if turning up as he's massively favoured by race conditions being rated 11lb higher on official ratings than his Irish compatriot. Both are on the upgrade but it's hard to oppose Lisbon on those figures.
