Foresters Folly was second over C&D two weeks ago but he appears to have two ways of running and a few in this are less exposed. Ron won a bumper at Doncaster in March while The Jugopolist was sent off favourite for a NH Flat race on his reappearance at Hereford last month, though was a little disappointing. Benefit Of Youth was comfortably brushed aside on his hurdling debut at Perth but should improve for the experience but rong class='v5-txt-up'>MONTEFELTROrong> is the interesting one in this. John Ferguson does well with his cast-offs from the Flat and his charge was placed in a couple of maidens for Godolphin as a three-year-old. That suggests he may have too much class for these.
