Dindin looked like winning for the first time since joining David Pipe’s yard over track and trip last time but fell at the last when clear of the rest. Electron Bleu ran well back over fences at Southwell and is preferred to Ragamuffin off his current mark while Coal Stock debuts over fences having been beaten off today’s mark over hurdles at Worcester last month. ONE FOR BILLY found one too good in a tougher chase at Market Rasen last time but looks worth another chance having won in this grade at Huntingdon earlier and first-time cheekpieces may bring further improvement.
