Finding Your Feet has only had one run since December and may find the ground a bit lively. Mohi Rahrere keeps threatening to pop up again here but is better over fences nowadays and Handsome Dan's Market Rasen victory also came over the larger obstacles. Thoresby could have each-way claims but Cusheen Bridge, Nether Stream and Dais Return all got found out last time. Marico should do better back over hurdles but there is probably more to come from HIGH KITE. His win at Ffos Las came over fences but he's versatile and won't be fazed by a switch back to timber having gone close at Huntingdon and Wetherby in the spring.
