TRULY FRUITFUL, Feeling and Owen's Sedge may be the three to concentrate on with the former getting the nod. Tony McCoy is a positive booking for Dr Newland's charge who wasn't disgraced in a Stratford handicap on his most recent outing. His profile isn't the most convincing but this does represent a drop in class and he may be good enough to take advantage. Feeling produced a career best to fill the runner-up's berth in a Stratford seller last month and a repeat of that form should be sufficient to see him in the shake-up. Owen's Sedge travels from Ireland to take his place in this line-up and showed enough when third in a novice hurdle at Worcester to believe that he can make his presence felt in this line-up. Captain Crackers disappointed on debut for this yard having won a seller on his penultimate outing whilst Centenary is relatively unexposed and represents a shrewd yard but Truly Fruitful may be able to take the honours.
