Inandover ran well in a novices event here last month but poorly at Worcester subsequently then fell at the first at Towcester. CARA COURT stays extreme distances as he proved when scoring over 3m3f at Sedgefield in March. He's 12lb higher but his regular partner can claim 5lb and that should be enough to give him the verdict. Shock N Freaney, a winner between the flags in Ireland, has shown nothing for new connections but is young enough to make progress. Cloudy Dawn has had plenty of experience and runs the occasional good race while Andrew Thornton was on board when Might As Well scored over this trip at Plumpton in April.
