Getmeouthedoldrums probably has the most scope of these but Charlie Longsdon's former pointer has been on the sidelines for a long time and may need this. Truckers Benefit, another recruit from the point-to-point field, has finished runner-up in a couple of Hereford bumpers and should benefit from the switch to hurdles but AKBABEND can defy a penalty in this. He's worth another chance to recapture the decent form he showed earlier in the summer as long as the ground doesn't deteriorate.
