SHY JOHN is rated much higher than today's opposition on official figures. He won one of these events at Wincanton a fortnight ago and will likely start a short price given it's hard to make a case for any of the remainder. Mister Teddy has bits of form that could see him figure but hasn't raced for nearly a year and Kiestown Chief was placed in similar company back in 2012. Chief Heckler finished a bit closer when third at Bangor in May and may prove best of the rest ahead of Swallows Delight.
