Oliver Sherwood's stable has been among the winners in the last few days and his PUFFIN BILLY could be the one here under Barry Geraghty. He won by 17 lengths on his debut at Fontwell in March and obviously has ability. Chain Reactor and Salbatore are also one from one in bumpers but probably need to improve to trouble the selection off level weights and Amifunnyyet and Ernie are bigger dangers getting 7lb. Hell's Spirit has won between the flags and Henryville was second in a point-to-point in April. Lord Protector is by Oscar so should have a future over jumps and Philip Hobbs' newcomer is also worth a second glance.
