Future Profit is not without a chance on his return to action but TODAREISTODO has a fitness advantage. Jim Old's charge was placed at Chepstow on his comeback and gets another chance to make the most of an 8lb lower mark over hurdles. Dynamic Idol should also improve for his recent outing at Warwick when eight lengths behind Dormouse and he can figure while selling hurdle winner Samtheman has a shout if at his best. Northern Lad is another with the past form to get involved and Pepito Collonges posted a better effort over fences last time.
