The winners continue to flow for Dan Skelton’s yard and Bbold added to the tally when scoring over a longer trip here last month. But COME ON TEDDY finished a decent third at Exeter in front of a horse rated 127 and Tom George’s charge should go very close in this company on that form. Leaving Home has struggled since landing a bumper last summer while all-weather bumper winner Arkyn debuts over hurdles along with Versatility, representing Nicky Henderson, and the Twiston-Davies' grey The Enchanter.
