Teddy's Reflection finished second in similar company before taking an early fall at Sandown last time. SIZING AMERICA was a well beaten sixth in the same race at Sandown but had gone close when third in a handicap before that and makes more appeal than the former on today's terms. Ringa Bay was still in contention when taking a tumble on his only start over regulation fences at Ffos Las last May but arrives on the back of a couple of point-to-point victories and is not out of this. The General Lee has the past form to figure and makes more appeal than Dont Tell The Wife and Direct Flo.
