The penalised Browns Brook has got his act together at Huntingdon lately and his yard is also in great form. He'll be hard to beat but FULL OV BEANS is another arriving at the top of his game. Ally Stirling's mount is upped a couple of grades but he's won by a wide margin twice over course and distance recently and his featherweight should be an advantage on the ground. Elenika is from the same stable as Browns Brook and is proven at this level. He's beginning to come down the weights and should run well but Dashing George may not be the force of old. Taffy Thomas was in front when unseating Tom O'Brien at Market Rasen 10 days ago and is worth considering however.
