Gilbarry is often let down by his jumping while Panjo Bere has more on his plate than when successful at Fontwell. Wake Board and Pigeon Island are both well enough treated if in the mood, however, and David Pipe runs Soulard and Laustra Bad who are others with claims along with Wolf Moon. Up To The Mark still has a bit of scope and the good ground will suit Baseball Ted, though he is always been better over 2m in the past. Health Is Wealth and SPOCK both return from a break but are more than capable of running well fresh and the latter, who came up against Sunday's impressive Stratford winner Ostland on his latest start at Huntingdon in October, gets a tentative vote today.
