Steve Gollings has had a few winners lately and point-to-point and bumper winner ALL THAT REMAINS may well be capable of improving on his hurdling debut at Doncaster if ridden closer to the pace here. He wasn't beaten far on Town Moor and, getting 7lb from Judiciary, gets the vote today. The latter was always travelling like a winner at Plumpton, however, and is lightly-raced as is Saga De Tercey, who will have needed his run at Uttoxeter which was his first in 18 months. The winner will almost certainly come from this trio.
