This will take some getting in the conditions and Battle Of Ideas has yet to prove himself on the ground. Tractor Fred is still a maiden and ran poorly at Sedgefield last time but a chance is taken that ROBYNDZONE (NAP) handles the going. Fergal O'Brien's six-year-old had no problems on soft ground at Huntingdon last month and though 7lb higher this looks no tougher. Putdecashonthedash would have gone close here early last month but for a mistake at the last and was in touch when falling at Sedgefield three weeks later but Truckers Cailin has struggled since a narrow victory at Ffos Las in November.
