Many house similar profiles in that they are extremely consistent but finding it hard to get their head in front at present. Suburban Bay has placed in five of six chase starts, whilst THELOBSTERCATCHER has found the frame in eight of his 11 chase outings. The latter is a quirky, frustrating character but does have ability and is just preferred. Moyode Wood delivered a good first effort for Brian Ellison behind Shoegazer at Southwell and the former pointer should go well again but Paddy The Hare looks the main threat to the selection as he's in extremely consistent form at present and was a solid second here to Russian War just five days ago over trip and ground. He's landed two successes and been in the four 11 times in his last 13 runs and seems sure to get involved again.
