Winning point-to-pointer ANOTHER MATTIE was just denied over 2m1f here last time and with the longer trip certain to suit he gets the nod. Cruachan is another who should relish the step up in trip while Azerodegree makes a quick reappearance after producing easily his best run to date at Hexham on Saturday. Irish raider Jumbo John ran quite well in a Navan handicap last time and should find this a bit easier but Clondaw Knight made too many mistakes here last time and will need to brush up his jumping.
