Cap Elorn rattled up a four-timer on fast ground last summer and it will be interesting to see how he fares after a break. Wincanton runner-up Spock isn't badly treated but George Nympton has become difficult to predict. Manger Hanagment has won off a higher mark in the past but hasn't raced since September. ALWAYSTHEOPTIMIST is another potentially well treated and won at Stratford last June the last time he competed in this grade over fences. He gets a tentative vote as Star In Flight continues to disappoint.
