Martin Keighley trained the winner of this in 2009 and WON MORE NIGHT can take the honours again for the Condicote yard. The mare is starting to come down the weights again and had a nice pipe-opener over hurdles at Uttoxeter earlier this month. Most of her rivals struggle to get their head in front with The Grey One still a maiden after 16 starts over hurdles and fences and Chilbury Hill is on a long losing run. Rince Donn is back on a winning mark, however, and Salybia Bay could be open to a little improvement and makes more appeal than Guns Of Love, who may need this.
