Rubytwo was runner-up to a subsequent winner at Wetherby on her reappearance. She is now 0-8 over timber but has place claims again. Romeo Brown went close over 2m4f here in October but then turned in a shocker when favourite at Wetherby. Course and distance winner Dorking Cock is back over hurdles having failed to take to fences but CURRAMORE impressed in the way he came up the hill to score here last month and can follow up making his debut in handicaps. Craig Star may prove the pick of the remainder.
