None of these have looked like winning so far but FLING ME should improve for his debut third at Chepstow. Oliver Sherwood's charge is a brother to winning chaser Dancing Art and may come out best. Ballyhooley Boy and Hope For Glory are others likely to finish closer on the back of recent debuts and make more appeal than Lapworth and Sheslikethewind. Arfur Didit is related to winning chasers and is preferred to fellow newcomer Midnight Chorister.
