PROUD GAMBLE was clearly in need of the run here last month but he’ll strip fitter today and has dropped to an attractive mark. Dartford Warbler finally took advantage of a tumble down the weights at Hexham last time but has gone up 5lb since and Inchcolm is entitled to get much closer on the revised terms. Miss Biscotti has finished second twice around here but probably needs further and News For Pascal is 0-16 under Rules. Little Windmill could be interesting, however, given he’s had a pipe-opener over hurdles since wind surgery and is starting to look well treated.
