Veteran Lorient Express is facing a stiff task on his reappearance and fellow C&D scorer Russian Flag hasn't been in the same form this season as last, though is back on a winning mark. Top Mark and Lord Singer now sport blinkers in an attempt to rekindle enthusiasm but the latter has gone up a further pound since finishing well beaten at Folkestone. The handicapper may have also got to Kilkenny All Star but Clouseau is still probably open to a little improvement, as is DINARIUS. Alex Hales' six-year-old carries a penalty for his pillar-to-post victory at Exeter but had a couple of useful novices behind that day and will take some catching if adopting similar tactics around here.
