A very interesting novices event in which a few look to have decent claims. Chaser Lost Legend was sent to Newton Abbot for a confidence-booster last time but the move backfired as he blundered and unseated his rider in the early stages. He's probably best watched here but My Lucky Flame is at the top of her game and seeking a four-timer. Mikey Hamill's claim will help offset her penalties while Newton Abbot winner Kilbree Kid is on an upward curve and Up For An Oscar would have been placed at Southwell last time had he not fallen. BENEFIT OF YOUTH was getting plenty of weight from Scoter Fontaine here three weeks ago but has got his act together this summer and could be another for the Tim Vaughan team in this.
