ANOTHER EMOTION received a novice occasion at Ffos Las in April and got here again from an extended break to go shut on his handicap debut at Sandown final time.

SPRINGTOWN LAKE is a fair 5lb higher than when winning well at Sandown in November. He then put in another decent effort when second at Haydock last time.
He steps up in distance here, which should suit, and he has more to offer on just his third run over fences.
Just A Sting should be popular after winning on both his chase outings, at Uttoxeter on debut and then Exeter last time out. He is up 6lb for that second win but should improve plenty.
