Comeonginger is two from two this season and it's difficult to see Vision Des Champs reversing a 17-length defeat at Kempton on only 10lb better terms. Highway Code needs to rediscover his best form and Walkabout Creek has also lost his way but a case can be made for Barenger on his victory at Market Rasen just under a year ago and Wilton Milan has been threatening to win a race like for a while. QUICK DECISSON hasn't been beaten far in either start over fences. He took a while to come to hand over hurdles last season and this is a good chance for him to break his duck over the larger obstacles.
