Wom wasn't beaten far under Trevor Whelan at Fakenham last time and must have some sort of chance, despite top weight. Inside Knowledge was fourth when dropped into a seller at Towcester and Freddy's Star is back in the right grade after a couple of runs in slightly better company. He also goes on the short-list along with Nicky Nutjob but it would be no surprise if POBS TROPHY's luck finally turned in this weak finale. He gets on well with Jonathan England and, though upped in the weights again since his latest second at Sedgefield, shouldn't be far away again.
