Toshi does most of his running over hurdles these days though he's not without a chance back on the level, while Polly Holder has been placed over today's trip at Southwell recently. Spruzzo has claims on his best efforts of last season and Lil Ella won one of these events for today's amateur over a shorter trip at Wolverhampton in February. However, Simon Walker's presence on DECIPHER takes the eye and, after a decent fourth at Redcar last time, the ten-year-old may still be capable of getting his head in front in this company.
