Am I Blue is starting to look well treated but she hasn't been seen since finishing tailed off at Hereford in December. We're inclined to take a chance on TAE KWON DO as both of his wins have come on good to firm ground and he didn't have conditions to his liking in the autumn. Tim Vaughan is very capable of getting his charges ready at home. Lord Of The Dunes wasn't beaten far at Exeter after finishing second at Ffos Las and is preferred to Broken Eagle and January's Chepstow scorer Lady Bridget on the prevailing going.
