Jamie Snowden wastes no time bringing out SANDY'S DOUBLE again, which is hardly surprising after last week's demolition of his rivals at Wincanton. He'll be going up by much more than the 7lb penalty he carries and looks the one to be on. Wayward Frolic is another who scored very easily last time where he made all over this course and distance. He's been raised 8lb but his young rider can claim most of it back and another big run is expected. Quarl Ego was making his debut over fences when narrowly beaten at Leicester in February and will be better for the experience while Russian Song had a confidence booster over timber last time after a couple of poor efforts over fences.
