Fresher Fishing returned to action with another win at Exeter and seems to be heading in the right direction, but Tarvini still appears a little high in the weights though his young rider claims 10lb here. Tiger Line stays well and is usually thereabouts but it looks like the handicapper has the measure of Absolute Shambles as he was well beaten when chasing a four-timer at Fontwell at the start of the month. Iris's Flyer won over C&D four weeks ago and is only 6lb higher but seems ideally suited by fast ground, which he won't get today, so preference is for HALUCHA. Paul Webber's six-year-old only won a three-runner race at Towcester last time but is a strapping sort who will be suited by today's step up in distance and he may be capable of grinding out another win over hurdles before going chasing.
