CALLHIMWHATYOUWANT surprisingly appeared to appreciate the drop in distance at Plumpton as he'd won three times over 3m between the flags. A penalty here complicates matters but Richard Newland's charge might be good enough to score again ahead of Market Rasen scorer Kayfton Pete. Apache Dawn caused an upset at but makes less appeal under a penalty while Roc De Guye has disappointed since finishing second at Fakenham in November. Reasonable Force hasn't shown much over fences so far but blinkers are tried here.
