It's difficult to make a decent case for any of this lowly bunch and a purely speculative vote goes the way of RIGID. He scored over track and trip early last year and will have come on for a recent reappearance at Wolverhampton. Crucis Abbey, Give Us A Belle and Boris The Bold have all finished a bit closer of late but haven't managed a single win between them so far and Compton Target and Avon Supreme make more appeal on recent placed efforts. Gay Gallivanter has been well beaten since winning at Southwell in November but Fashion Flow has some scope for improvement dropped in class.
