It's unusual to see a bumper inserted into the middle of a card but this could turn out to be an informative contest with several big yards represented. Nicky Henderson saddles Flying Native, a half-brother to winning jumpers Dave's Dream and Owen Glendower, and he has to go on the short-list while Philip Hobbs introduces the Catcher In The Rye gelding Anglingforcharlie. But we'll take a chance on NO NO ROMEO who is another nicely-bred newcomer from a stable that can get them ready at home. Roll On Ruby was placed at Bangor and Fontwell last summer but lacks a recent run.
