Mad Professor is scheduled to make a swift reappearance after finishing runner-up to Apache Blue at Market Rasen lon Sunday but has to race from 9lb out of the handicap. Red Law has been showing a bit more lately but Fairhaven needs to improve on a modest first effort over fences at Kempton and Bennynthejets has proved disappointing so this season, though is now 6lb lower than when successful over a shorter trip here last term. SHE'S HUMBLE rarely competes away from her beloved Plumpton nowadays but did post a C&D win last season and the fact that connections have sent her north for this looks a pointer in itself - she can regain the winning thread.
