Fly Haaf won a Polytrack maiden in June before being well beaten in a handicap at Newbury. Richard Hughes takes the ride and he should go close at this lowly level but Into The Wind has improved since finishing fourth in this 12 months ago and also has to go on the short-list. Urban Space was a hot favourite last year but stumbled and unseated his rider shortly after leaving the stalls and has gone backwards since. GOD'S COUNTY has shown little over hurdles since joining Sophie Leech but won four times on the Flat in France earlier in his career and the booking of Jamie Spencer here may be significant. He gets a tentative vote with Piers Gaveston and While You Wait probably best of the rest.
