Steelriver finished in front of The Groove when winning a claimer at Lingfield just three days ago and should go well again. Gottardo got his head in front under today’s rider at Chelmsford last month while Fiery Breath finished runner-up at Lingfield recently and can also figure. Bobby Joe Leg has been thereabouts of late and Bernie's Boy is partnered by a leading amateur but KRAZY PAVING arrives in fine form having completed a double with last month’s course and distance success and looks worth sticking with in this.
