DECENT LORD had Turf Trivia well behind when successful at Newcastle last month but didn't jump well enough to follow up at Southwell. This is not a strong heat, however, and Jennie Candlish's charge must have every chance of recouping losses if the blinkers have the desired effect. Cara Court runs his best races here but this looks on the sharp side while Cloudy Dawn is now one from 20 over fences and, like Celts Espere, carries more than his allotted weight. Orlittlebylittle has only had one start over fences so a market check is advised.
