Victor Leudorum ran a shocker when tried in handicap company at Cartmel two weeks ago. He may do better back against novices but faces no easy task conceding weight to seven previous winners including unexposed C&D scorer Wiffy Chatsby and Awaywiththegreys, who was taking on much stiffer opposition when falling at Market Rasen last month. AHYAKNOWYERSELF struggled to land the odds at Stratford and needs more here but the extra distance will be a big help and Richard Newland's charge is fancied to come out on top. Superman De La Rue has ability and may figure but the others have a little to find on the book.
