Bring Back Charlie and Table Bluff went close at Stratford and Southwell respectively last time. State The Obvious was second to Shanksforamillion, who runs in the first division, here earlier in the month but Willyegolassiego has been harshly raised 8lb for a narrow win at Uttoxeter and wouldn’t want any rain. MR CAFFREY (NAP) justified market support at Stratford on his first start for Richard Newland. The first two pulled well clear so the five-year-old is probably worth sticking with here as he escapes a penalty.
