This doesn't look the strongest of bumpers so Tom George's newcomer Big Society, by Flemensfirth out of useful hurdler Choice Of Kings, should be thereabouts if fully wound-up. Beat The Ref needs to settle better than when fourth at Southwell on his debut but is another to consider, though MONEYMIX probably has better form. The latter cost £33,000 as a three-year-old and will be all the better for his fourth at Warwick where he wasn't unduly punished after getting outpaced on the turn for home.
