Black Lightning won over hurdles here in June but didn’t shown much on his chasing bow at the track in August. Gold Mountain has placed in his last three but has only one career victory to his name and is likely to find at least one too good again. Hugo's Reflection is a possibility but still 6lb higher than when successful at Market Rasen in March. MORTENS LEAM is back on his favourite track and only 3lb higher than when running away with this 12 months ago so a repeat may be on the cards.
