Akarita Lights has twice finished second round here in bumpers so the track will hold no fears for Alan King’s gelding, who should make a hurdler. DEPUTY JONES is the form pick, however, if his third at Fontwell is taken at face value. He was only beaten by a couple of useful novices that day and would have finished closer but for some wayward jumping. Uttoxeter fourth Overflow is probably capable of better but Clem is best watched after a break.
