The ex-Irish For The Staff has won twice between the flags recent while Presentandcorrect and Thirtytwo Red also come here off the back of victories in point-to-points. But the class act is Philip Hobbs' TEMPLER, a winner under Rules at Cheltenham and Ffos Las last year. He'll be all the better for last month's fifth in a better contest at Taunton. Glacial Call is a C&D winner but she's always been difficult to predict and isn't getting any better with age.
