Saint Jerome won at Ludlow in November but the merit of that form is debatable. Yabadabadoo was second on his hurdling debut at Huntingdon but that was over a longer trip and winning pointer Worthy Award may also need further. The latter's stablemate, Less Time, has a nice pedigree and might improve for the switch to hurdles while all-weather winner Neighbourhood wasn't beaten far at Towcester last month and Saint John Henry should improve for his introduction at Huntingdon. But LONG LUNCH has been quite highly tried since scoring at Plumpton in the autumn. Today's better ground should aid his cause and he's fancied to overcome his penalty and beat these.
