Papradon is 16lb higher than when winning this 12 months ago but has come out on top in two of his last three starts and should confirm recent Uttoxeter running with Lukeys Luck, who was also engaged here yesterday. The Mad Robertson is still a maiden over fences but his turn isn't far away judged on recent seconds at Uttoxeter and Newton Abbot. DUNEEN POINT also appears on an upward curve, however, and should build on a recent victory at Perth. The second franked the form last week and Tim Vaughan's charge is preferred to Baizically, who won at Tramore on Saturday but has more on his plate here under a penalty. An Capall Mor has disappointed this year and is best watched for now.
