It's difficult to know what Youngdocgallagher is doing with top weight, even in this poor contest. HE'S THE DADDY has a course and distance victory to his credit and showed a bit more dash on his latest start at Taunton so Jamie Bargary can steer him home. Signed Request once looked promising and was heavily support on his comeback after almost two years off at Taunton last month but the confidence was misplaced. Occasionally Yours has won four times over timber though not for two years but Kilkenny Kim looked as though a first victory was imminent before finding heavy ground against her at Ayr. Old Magic has won once in 34 starts over hurdles but Memory Of Light showed her first sign of ability at Taunton and is one of the few here with scope.
