A few of these have seen better days and Gemini Ahhs barely raised a gallop when odds-on at Exeter after winning at Towcester. One More Dinar looks high enough in the weights at present while Pretty Penny didn't build on her Southwell second at Warwick last month and is now tried in blinkers. SENTIMENTALJOURNEY hasn't exactly set the world alight over fences so far but this extended distance could be the making of him as he won over 3m3f over hurdles here in August off an 8lb higher mark. The top weight is preferred to Plumpton runner-up Soutine but the relatively unexposed Victoria Rose may be capable of better.
