Award Winner bids for a quick fire hat-trick but has a penalty for beating modest opposition at Fontwell last week and may be worth taking on this time. City Press hasn't been seen since getting off the mark at Market Rasen in May and Kruseman, Thedeboftheyear, Briefcase and Terfel's Toscar also return from a break, though the latter is lightly-raced. No Woman No Cry and Jewellery both disappointed last time but Matrow's Lady was second on her reappearance at Ffos Las, though is 5lb higher now. GOUGANE is better known as a chaser but can race off a 4lb lower mark over hurdles than when runner-up at Huntingdon earlier in the month and could be a worth a speculative wager in this.
