Overdante finally got off the mark with a narrow margin victory at Doncaster last month. Lightly-raced considering his age, he can go well again despite a 6lb rise but another chance goes to ONE FOR LUCK. Tim Easterby's hurdler could only manage third when sent off favourite at Catterick last time but this looks less competitive and he gets the nod. Riddlestown is not out of this on his best form but it's hard to make a serious case for any of the remainder as My Nosy Rosy has failed to build on her earlier fourth at Towcester and Adios Alonso disappointed last time after a couple of placed efforts.
