Normandy King was heavily supported at Sedgefield last month but was only staying on at one pace when falling at the last. Winning bumper Wymeswold had only shown glimpses of form over hurdles before a shock victory over this trip at Doncaster in November though that was on quicker ground than she'll face here. Aaman's close second at Southwell in February came in a seller and he was well beaten at this level at Chepstow last time. FIDDLER'S FLIGHT isn't the most consistent but has won twice on testing ground at Sedgefield this winter and is just 1lb higher than his latest success so looks the one to be on.
