Theatrelands has been a bit of a disappointment over hurdles so far and still doesn't look particularly well treated. Knockgraffon Lad will probably need to find more to open his account but On The Feather won a seller at Stratford last month and Tri Nations might have a chance back over timber as he's won off much higher marks in the past. It's difficult to get away from HAIL TIBERIUS, however, despite a double penalty. He won on the bridle at Uttoxeter on Sunday and it's no surprise to see him turned out again quickly.
