The Way It Works is penalised for her two bumper victories in the UK but Burton Hall has shown improved form at around this trip recently. DONTBACKME was very unfortunate in his opening two starts over timber but did most things right when just failing to catch Illtakeitfromhere over the course and distance last month. He can go one better as Easter Hunt, who would have a definite chance on his placed efforts last summer, pulled up on both starts over fences and hasn't run since August. Aunt Alice and Rufino both showed improved form when placed behind Fiosrach here last month though were getting plenty of weight.
