Rambling Rector won a four-year-old maiden between the flags at Mainstown in November and is an interesting runners here for Warren Greatrex. Puppet Warrior has only found one too god in all three starts to date and was only beaten half-a-length at Fontwell last time. He’s sure to be thereabouts again while Corzeam was still green when fourth at Kempton. Cloth Cap and Jersey Bean are worth noting for future reference but the Oscar gelding WHISKEY IN THE JAR is fancied to build on his second at Roscommon in October. Now with Dan Skelton, he’s a half-brother to a couple of winning hurdlers in Ireland.
