Beware Chalk Pit almost always goes well here and scored over the trip in December. He didn't jump as well as usual when beaten by today's rival Quartz Du Montceau in January and a better round should see him go close.. A line of form through the winner, who ran poorly from his new mark last time, suggests there's little between that duo and Sea Cadet, and Laura Mongan's charge looks a threat. Miss Fleur is capable of going well in this lowly grade though she was struggling badly when unseating her rider here last time but winning point-to-pointer GEMINI AHHS ran his best race under Rules at Towcester last time and, as this won't take much winning, he's given the nod.
