My Boy Ginger won on heavy ground at Ffos Las in July but hasn't done much since and is blinkered for his first appearance in claiming company. Offbeat Safaris only won a seller at Chepstow last month but Netley Marsh is worth a second look with Richard Hughes on board, though previous tries over this sort of trip have been disappointing. BERNISDALE was last seen finishing fourth in a handicap hurdle at Newton Abbot but won over 1m4f here in June and was second over the C&D on her previous start. John Flint's filly should have too much for these at the weights.
