Just Benny posted an improved effort when third on his return to action at Chepstow and has plenty of scope for improvement. However, NOTHINGBUTTHETRUTH went close over fences at this track last time and Tim Pitt's charge gets the vote off a 5lb lower mark back over the smaller obstacles with a 7lb claimer further helping his cause. Storm Survivor will have come on for his reappearance at Fontwell and is not easily dismissed, while Get Ready To Go's second over these hurdles in February gives him claims. Himrayn has lost his way since completing a double over fences early this year, but is well handicapped if rediscovering his form.
