Houseparty has his first run since October and John Ferguson's bumper winner may need more time. Yorkist has only found one too good in a couple of recent races at Carlisle but the form is nothing special while Travis County needs to settle better, though was second over course and distance on his penultimate start. TREND IS MY FRIEND was made favourite for a handicap at Catterick last time after a couple of decent efforts in novice events but was a bit keen and made mistakes before fading into fourth. He might be worth another chance as Cruachan needs to improve again on his fourth at Kelso.
