Ballybach is tumbling down the weights while Little Jimmy finally came good at Stratford last month, though was all out to do so and is 3lb higher here. Fitandproperjob looks the pick of Anthony Middleton's two runners but FULL OV BEANS seems to like it here. He would probably have completed a course and distance hat-trick in February had he not unseated his rider and wasn't disgraced in an above-average seller over hurdles at Stratford last time. Rossa Parks finished alone at Wincanton in November but has shown little since.
