Mazikeen probably sets the standard among those with experience on his fourth at Lingfield but Newcastle third Martin's Brig has travelled a long way for this. Flash To Bang was very green on debut at Ascot but that was back in May and headgear is now applied. Mark Johnston introduces BEECHWOOD JIM BOB, who runs in the Middleham Park colours and is a half-brother to a 1m2f winner in France. The trip won’t be a problem and he can make a winning debut.
