The three at the head of the weights all finished second on their latest starts and look to have this between them. On The Feather finished runner-up in a seller at Taunton and Ardmaddy was beaten eight lengths over a longer trip at this track. ULLSWATER looks to have the strongest form as he had subsequent winner Foxcub behind when second to Dresden at Worcester so Andy Turnell's charge gets the vote. Just Beware went close here back in December and could turn out best the remainder.
