ANTON DOLIN looks a very solid proposition. Strongly supported when scoring over 2m4f at Worcester last time, the ex-John Dunlop inmate looks to have really got his act together over timber and further improvement is expected. He's 10lb higher here but Christopher Ward claims a valuable 6lb. Nothing Is Forever was beaten miles last time at Newton Abbot but his Wincanton success over Dark Spirit was a useful effort and he's the danger if returning to that level. Fair Breeze has yet to win over hurdles but has been giving a respectable account and enters calculations off the bottom perch after not doing too badly last time when finishing in mid-division on the level behind Arashi on the Kempton polytrack.
