LORD NAVITS has taken to fences like a duck to water. He's collected a penalty for winning by 14 lengths at Bangor last week but is still getting weight from Workbench and Elsafeer, who are both on a recovery mission having been pulled up at Taunton and Sedgefield respectively last time. Radsoc De Sivola is an incredible 58lb out of the handicap and is impossible to fancy.
