Tres Froide came out best of those who finished behind John Potts here last month. She finished second, just ahead of Director General, Fortunate Bid and Pie Poudre but only a little over a length covered the four runners and they are difficult to separate here. Provost has a chance on his return from a lay-off but the vote goes to JOIN UP. A winner over C&D in December, he went close at Kempton last time and today's amateur Becky Brisbourne rode a winner here last month.
