The handicapper looks to have a firm grip on Lough Coi now but several of today's rivals may be gearing up for a summer jumping campaign and are likely to need this run. THORESBY is probably an exception and well worth another try over fences after winning for the second time this season over hurdles at Huntingdon on his return from a break. Haar is also still a maiden over fences but was beaten less than four lengths when third at Huntingdon last month and Callhimwhatyouwant has won three times between the flags. Croco Mister did finish ahead of Haar two runs ago but has been beaten since and is worse off at the weights today.
