My Oh Mount Brown is on a hat-trick after victories at Sedgefield and Towcester but he's shot up the weights and there is a doubt about his effectiveness on this easier surface. Silver Dragon handled good to soft ground when winning at Uttoxeter last month, however, while Cleve Cottage should improve for his fourth at the same track. But we are going to give another chance to LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, who will hopefully have had plenty of schooling since blundering his way around Bangor. He's now fitted with a visor and this is his easiest task so far over timber.
