Formscan - Russian Virtue is on a four-timer over hurdles and arrives on the back of a recent success on the Flat at Newcastle. His last victory over timber came at Sedgefield in January and he is expected to be in the mix off a 7lb higher mark. Ivetwiggedit hasn't looked back since joining Tom Lacey and moving into handicap company, completing a quickfire treble under Cameron Iles, and has to enter calculations, but the vote goes to WELL EDUCATED. George Bewley's seven-year-old was in excellent form last autumn and returned from a break with a creditable effort against stronger opposition at Kelso. Dropped 1lb, he is entitled to step forward and prove capable of further improvement.
