AUTUMN RETURN (1.35 Musselburgh, nap)
This daughter of Fame And Glory has built a good partnership with champion jockey Brian Hughes who has been on board for her past two runs.
They scooted in at Perth in April and kicked off this season with a close-up second at Kelso where the drop back to two miles didn’t suit this real stayer.
She got better as the race went on and was gaining at the line so moving back to this more suitable 2m4f trip looks a wise move by Ruth Jefferson. The handicapper has been fair and the six-year-old is only 4lb higher than her victory with the scope to improve.
MATTERHORN (12.50 Taunton, nb)
Since moving across the Channel to Paul Nicholls, he has scored by 13 lengths here in March before a close second at Huntingdon to end his first British campaign.
He was back here just 14 days ago, this time battering his 10 rivals by 16 lengths without breaking sweat. Harry Cobden’s mount carries a penalty for that victory but it shouldn’t stop him going in again.
EDE’IFFS ROCK (3.45 Taunton, treble)
She showed plenty of promise on her first two spins over hurdles last season with seconds at Warwick and Newton Abbot. That form was left behind on her return at Plumpton 10 days ago when she went down in a tight finish.
She gave the strong impression that stepping up from two miles would be a wise move and that’s just what she does today.
