HANNINGTON showed his debut running to be all wrong when winning cosily at Nottingham last month. He's less exposed than most and is preferred to Heska. The latter clipped heels and came a cropper at Yarmouth last time but had won at Beverley before that. Dutch Rifle has disappointed so far this year having won here on his debut last season while better is expected from Dynamic Ranger back on the all-weather. Derbyshire returned to action with a win at Yarmouth but a visor is applied for the first time after a couple of poor efforts over 1m2f.
