ENDEAVOR won under today's today's jockey before following up at Kelso last Monday in a conditional riders event. He escapes a penalty as a consequence and a hat-trick looks on the cards. Kayfton Pete went close for an amateur over fences at Leicester last month and can figure back over the smaller obstacles while Kingdom Of Munster was beaten less than a length in a seller at Wetherby last time. He's preferred to recent Southwell third Catawollow and Wom but it's hard to make a serious case for any of the remainder.
