Plenty of these have been jumping including ANCIENT TIMES, who has won over hurdles and fences recently. He's obviously improved over the winter and arrives here on the mark of a selling plater so looks the one to be on. Harvey's Hope is another recent winner and he won a 1m6f handicap here in 2011 from 8lb higher so has to be considered. Day Of Destiny has been running consistently on the all-weather but needs to step up a gear with his big weight while Brasingaman Eric hasn't been seen since scoring on fast ground at Nottingham in 2011. Zaplamation is on his lowest mark since 2009 and shouldn't be dismissed after a decent effort at Doncaster on Saturday.
