Rubys Cube won this last year when 4lb lower but hasn’t been seen since. HOT RYAN and Superefficient finished 1-2 over course and distance when Lapalala, who was engaged at Newton Abbot yesterday, was a well-beaten favourite. David Pipe’s charge probably had the run of the race that day but may still find the necessary improvement to confirm the form. Luck Of The Legion looked to be coming to hand at Bangor but Talkingpicturestv ran poorly when last in action at Cartmel in June and Sin Sin was beaten in a seller last time.
