GREEN FLAG, already successful in a point-to-point and bumper, looks to have been found a good opportunity to get off the mark over hurdles on ground that will suit. Badgers Retreat was second twice at Sedgefield around this time last year and is probably the danger as Farm Pixie is starting to run out of chances. Seriously and Uno Valoroso have only had one run and the former started favourite in a Stratford bumper in July but they may need more time.
