Trained locally by Gary Moore and ridden by his son Jamie, Not Never ran in a high-class handicap at Ascot and was well down the field.
However, he was reappearing after a near 300-day absence so would have need the run in any event and is in much calmer waters this afternoon.
Prior to that layoff, he had scored on his last two runs, both times at Plumpton, and that form gives him every chance here despite top weight.
GET IN THE QUEUE (nb, 4.15) should have backers doing just that as they collect after the last at Ffos Las.
Harry Fry trains the five-year-old for leading owners Paul and Clare Rooney and their blue and yellow colours should come home in front under amateur Michael Legg, who claims a useful 5lb.
Legg had the leg-up on the gelding when they came home nine-length winners of a Uttoxeter bumper last month and the pair can repeat the trick here.
Nigel Twiston-Davies supplies the main danger in the shape of Jelski, who showed ability when fifth on debut in an Ascot bumper.
UMNDENI (treble, 2.55) can land the maiden hurdle at Fontwell for Philip Hobbs and Richard Johnson.
He won a bumper at Warwick on debut and has performed well in two subsequent attempts over hurdles. His last run was a good fifth behind Rathhill at Newbury and a reproduction of that effort should be good enough here.
