Victories here and at Carlisle means the rejuvenated NICENE CREED arrives on a hat-trick. He's still thrown in on his form of a few years ago and it would be no surprise to see him win again before the handicapper takes appropriate action. Molon Labe won here last month but was beaten in an Exeter seller last time while Fontwell second Great Hero still looks too high in the weights. The Fox's Decree is still a maiden over hurdles and William Hogarth has been largely disappointing this term and may no longer have the application to take advantage of a lenient mark. Jewellery needs to recapture the form she showed last September and Not So Sure Dick didn't show much back over timber at Fakenham last time but Crazy Bold could go well off a low weight.
