Regaby won at Hexham in August but was pulled up in the race won by BROTHER PAT at Worcester last month and tailed off subsequently at Market Rasen. Donald McCain’s charge has since only managed a second at Sedgefield but the drop in distance didn’t do him any favours that day and his yard continue to fire in the winners. Churchtown Glen placed twice in the spring, including once here, and looks the pick of the remainder.
