COOLE HALL has already won here and at Newcastle and looks a nice staying prospect so will be a short price to give weight away to this bunch. Knockrobin may be the one to chase him home as he got outpaced over 2m4f at Carlisle having won over 3m between the flags just under a year ago. Behindthelines and Rowdy Robin also have point-to-point experience but haven’t pulled up any trees and the others have even less to recommend them.
