Course winner Timpo returns from a break but Pensnett Bay bounced back to form at Uttoxeter last month and is another with winning form at the track. NODEBATEABOUTIT has take really well to fences, however, and put in another slick round of jumping when scoring at Lingfield. He's the type to continue on an upward curve and a hat-trick beckons, though Rebel Swing's connections will fancy their charge to reverse Wetherby running with the selection on 11lb better terms. Fennis Boy and Downward Spiral looks exposed but How's My Friend may have benefited from a short break and could make the frame.
