Most of these are right out of form and it's hard to be confident. An exception is the former Stoute inmate, THE FONZ. His three runs over timber for his underrated handler have suggested he can make his mark in this game and it would be no surprise to see him score if ready for this first run since November. Lost Glory had a splendid second half of 2011 and probably needed his comeback run at Towcester. He has every chance if back to the level of last year. Lemon's Gent has shown little since winning on his bumper debut at Ludlow last year but he's only had three runs over timber and it's too early to give up on him yet.
