It could be worth taking a chance on Martin Keighley’s charge, who won a match at Fontwell in September and has been nudged up 3lb in the weights as a result.

Sean Bowen steered Mr Mafia to success at Fontwell and bids to follow up on the 12-year-old at Wincanton

He’s certainly not getting any younger but is enjoying a consistent run of form at the moment and makes his first appearance at this track at the 67th time of asking.

The longer trip will suit once again, seemingly appearing to fare better over a distance that extends three miles, and Sean Bowen is back aboard in Somerset as he bids for the two-timer.

NB: ISLAND NATION | 1:45pm MansionBet Bet 10 Get 20 Novices’ Hurdle

A closely tied contest but Olly Murphy’s representative had likely shown the highest level of consistency and gets a first crack at this trip.

He’s been quickly turned out following his Huntingdon second earlier this month and looks well in at the weights with his two market principals, Beholden and Arcade Attraction.
