Wait A Second was still beaten 21 lengths when second at Towcester last month. Copperfacejack keeps finding one too good but has crept up the handicap and it seems like a long time since Mrsrobin was winning at Newton Abbot in August – she's tried in cheekpieces here in an attempt to rekindle her enthusiasm. KID KALANISI didn't have the pace to score over hurdles but was placed three times. Maybe the switch to fences can see the five-year-old enjoy better fortune.
