LOOKING ON appears to have a strong chance after a highly promising debut at Huntingdon when only reeled in late on by a useful Flat performer in Hefner. That read as a decent novice hurdle and the gelding, who enjoyed some useful Flat handicap form for Henry Candy last year, should be well up to going one better now. Further rain would be the only negative. Breaking Bits has shown sufficient ability since moving from Ireland in a couple of outings for Jamie Snowden to suggest that he houses reasonable each-way claims but he will need to improve considerably on those efforts to trouble the selection. Titus Mills also revealed debut promise and warrants shortlist inclusion whilst Rosslyn Castle can improve on a mid-division finish on his Newbury hurdling debut. Infact it's rather strange to see him here at all as at one stage last season he looked a Flat handicapper with a real future for Roger Charlton.
