Most have a fair claim but FIELD EXHIBITION could prove well treated off the bottom run after displaying considerable improvement on his second start for Christian Williams. He travelled very sweetly when landing a handicap chase at Worcester and could be a step or two ahead of the handicapper. Cafe Au Lait is a threat returned to the larger obstacles and Gone Platinum continues to run his race and should do so again despite a 3lb rise for a recent narrow defeat. He goes well around here. It's still early days with Atlanta Ablaze over fences and it's interesting to see Trafalgar Rock sent over fences after being claimed out of a selling hurdle by the Bowen yard.
