Father Probus should do better now qualified for handicaps, while the lightly-raced Mr Bennett showed up well for a long way on his reappearance at Folkestone. Silver Accord has been in good form and The Gripper got off the mark at Hereford last time under today's rider. Veteran Deep Pockets was a decent second over this trip at Taunton latest and C&D winner Outlaw Tom returned to form at Catterick last month but this can go to FULL OF JOY. Jonjo O'Neill's six-year-old overcame trouble in running to score in this grade at Newbury in November and may have enough scope to overcome the subsequent weight rise.
