Debt To Society's most recent form figures are misleading in the context of this contest as he's been successfully plying his trade in selling company over hurdles but he has won around here over fences and is respected in an ordinary affair. However, he may find the combination of top weight and this sharpish trip for him too much to handle and EVER SO MUCH is preferred. The latter has his first run for Ben Haslam, in much better form of late, after joining the Middleham yard from Ireland where he shaped nicely in a useful Limerick beginners' chase behind Enjoy Responsibly last month. The champion is booked and there should be plenty more to come from this unexposed five-year-old. Unknown Legend and Indepub, both winners over timber, now make their chasing debuts.
