Powertakeoff won a Fakenham seller last month but was only third off today's mark at Southwell next time. Ruby Valentine has also won a seller at the Norfolk track this season but that was back in November and she hasn't been seen since. Wom is another returning from a break and he might struggle to hang on to the coat tails of WATT BRODERICK around here. Ian Williams' gelding was second in a jumpers' bumper at Kempton last month before winning on the Polytrack. He wasn't beaten far at Lingfield subsequently and should take all the beating if translating that form back to hurdles.
