A big field for this lowly handicap and GEORGE FENTON gets another chance. He had a couple of these behind when runner-up over track and trip last time and is reunited with winning partner Phillip Prince for this. Hellbender has been in fine form over 7f here recently but likes to race prominently and is compromised by a high draw today while Marshall Art faces tougher competition than those he beat in a seller here earlier in the month. Lucky Mark and Nant Saeson have done their winning on the Polytrack so far but Upper Lambourn has won three times on Fibresand and has tumbled down the handicap.
