Verdict

Ogee beat Red Not Blue on soft ground at Southwell last month but the runner-up is now 4lb better off and entitled to get much closer, though has been well beaten since here over a shorter trip. LETSBY AVENUE took a while to get the hang of jumping hurdles but recent victories at Uttoxeter and Market Rasen suggest he's got his act together now and he should be good enough to make a successful debut in handicaps. Malin Bay has never won south of the border and his fourth at Cartmel suggests he's high enough in the weights now while So Fine returns from a break and will probably be back over fences soon.
