Justified good market support when winning easily from Boot 'N' Shoe over C&D on debut a fortnight ago; Brian Hughes keeps the ride and the combination looks likely to take plenty of beating despite the gelding's penalty.

Jet Away gelding who cost 42,000euros as a 3yo and is a half-brother to a couple of winning hurdlers; stable can ready one to win first time so he is worth a check in the betting.

Seemingly boosted by first-time cheekpieces when winning comfortably over C&D (good to soft) in February; not quite in the same form on either subsequent appearance but still ran respectably at Plumpton last time, and the return to this track is an obvious plus.

Won comfortably in the first-time cheekpieces at Southwell (2m4f, good to soft) but he ran moderately off a 9lb higher mark next time when perhaps the headgear failed to help a second time; if it was just an off-day then he might bounce back.
