The jump jockeys like nothing better than to put one over their Flat counterparts and Richard Johnson's mount FLIPPING makes plenty of appeal on his reappearance. Better off at the weights than when only third to European Dream at Ayr in October, the five-year-old loves the mud and an outside draw could be an advantage today as the field often head for the stands rail at Sandown when the going is heavy. AP McCoy partners Silken Thoughts, who won on soft ground at Lingfield last August, while Barwick and Snow Trooper bring winning form into the race. A bigger danger, however, may be Great Shot who wasn't beaten far at Wolverhampton following his winter break and looks reasonably treated at present.
