Drumshambo has take well to fences and, though upped in grade, is bidding for a fourth win in five starts over the larger obstacles. He has a penalty for his latest success at Ludlow however. Irish raider Character Actor had a couple of engagements in this country yesterday while Charingworth may still be too high in the weights but LEASE LEND has winning form over C&D and is slowly working his way back to full fitness. Though a beaten favourite here last month, he's worth another chance off his current mark. Dontpaytheferryman is still a maiden over fences but likes the mud and could go well off bottom weight.
