LOOKBEFOREYOULEAP has little to beat in this and can finally get off the mark. He was expected to do better in a handicap here last time but this looks easier and he has a few pounds in hand with Stranfield Bay on today's terms. The latter was placed at Southwell recently while Kettlewell was winning over hurdles last year. He makes his debut on the Flat on his first start since October and has the beating of both Teenage Dream and Another Journey if translating his National Hunt form over to this code.
