High numbers used to have the advantage here but under new starting stall rules a low number is now favoured. That gives Humidor, a very progressive type last season and sure to be better for a run at Lingfield in February, every chance. Green Park has the worst of the draw and he's now on his highest mark for two years, but FOL HOLLOW returned from his winter's break to take this in 2009 and is good enough for a repeat from just 3lb higher. He was conceding Lenny Bee 10lb when a close fourth in the race last year and can turn the tables despite not having the best of draws. Rocket Bob had some decent form for Marco Botti last year and it won't have done him any harm at all to have joined the Willie Musson yard. He'll be winning soon and it would be no surprise if it were today. Beat The Bell is with the right man to exploit a low mark and a low draw will help his cause.
