COFFEE won at Worcester and Uttoxeter last September but the ground then turned against him. Providing a recent fall hasn't dented confidence, Jonjo O'Neill's gelding could well bounce back to winning ways reunited with A P McCoy. Bollin Judith followed up a close fourth at Taunton with a third in a well-contested bumper at Lingfield while Mubrook was second in a better race at Wincanton in January. Tiny Tenor's latest run here in January has worked out well and he also has a chance and Engai has been knocking on the door, though has now been beaten three times off this mark.
