Olympic Conqueror stepped up to 1m4f when scoring here in February. His victory over this trip at Redcar came on heavy ground so he could find this on the short side. St Gallen was bought for hurdling and scored twice last summer so he's another who could get outpaced. Richard Fahey sends Sootability from Yorkshire and she was in good form throughout last summer despite only winning once but the vote goes to WIMPOLE HALL, who is only 1lb higher than when landing a slightly better-class handicap over the trip at Chelmsford in November.
