Court Frontier showed some improvement for slipping down the weights when second at Ffos Las last month and Paddy The Deejay ran well on his return at Fontwell though remains winless. Regal Flow should be sharper for a comeback run in better company at Cheltenham but LOUGHALDER gets the vote to continue his good progress having followed a course and distance success with a win at Uttoxeter in May. Others returning to action with a shout include Exeter winner Barton Gift and Cheat The Cheater.
