Antigua Sunrise scored over the C&D in September and his subsequent starts have been over shorter. He didn't enjoy the best of runs under an apprentice on his return at Pontefract and Paul Hanagan takes over today. That should ensure a big effort but LOVERS CAUSEWAY is still remarkably be well treated despite a 6lb penalty for last week's Chester success and Mark Johnston has placed him to perfection. The Middleham handler is also represented by Becausewecan, who bounced back with an easy success at Hamilton and will make a bold bid to defy a penalty. Satwa Moon has only won once but today's conditions and trip will suit him much better than on his reappearance at Newbury and it will be a surprise if he isn't involved where in counts. Kathleen Frances progressed nicely last year while Huff And Puff hasn't been unduly punished for his Bath success and is another on the upgrade.
