Ben Case has his team in good order and Vesuvhill has hinted at ability in a couple of starts. Apples And Trees was third at Hexham on debut but already looks as though he's ready for a step up in trip. FOREVER FIELD is a half-brother to useful chaser Same Difference so should have a future at the winter game and is sure to know his job here. He gets weight from the older horses and can make a winning debut.
