ONE TERM didn't beat much on his chasing bow here last month but jumped well and clearly has a future over the larger obstacles. He may have too much pace for Market Rasen winner Foreverpresenting and gets 7lb from Atlanta Falcon, surprisingly beaten at Cartmel having just edged out the prolific On The Bridge in a handicap at Worcester earlier. The McCain yard also run chasing newcomer It's Oscar and he's preferred to Alderbrook Lad and Featherintheattic of the remainder.
