Christmas Twenty is 0-18 under Rules and could have done without a 4lb rise for finishing third at Sedgefield. Haul Us In is also still a maiden but is less exposed and was only beaten a neck at Ayr last month, though is 2lb higher now. LETEMGO has a very decent strike-rate over timber and escapes a penalty for a decisive win in a Ayr conditionals’ race eight days ago. Successful earlier at Kelso, Ross Chapman can claim his allowance in this and a hat-trick looks on the cards for Andrew Hamilton’s charge. The Model County has only gone up 3lb for winning at Southwell but Pinch Of Ginger has been chasing and has never won over hurdles.
