Madame Boot finished a length in front of Clearing House when fourth here last week but, along with last month's C&D winner Spinning Ridge, both have high draws to overcome today. Bubbly Braveheart hasn't had much luck with the draw either as he steps back down in trip after scoring over 1m2f a week ago and JOIN UP could take advantage. Mark Brisbourne's charge has won at Wolverhampton since going close over C&D in January and looks to have decent claims on that form. Rainsborough could prove best of the rest.
