Herd rolled 3-1, and as I could not imagine the Herd voting for anything else, I moved the 8/5, 6/5

Stiefnu is back up.

Lots of candidates but at this stage I can't see anything better than bringing one round the corner as a builder, to put a bit of pressure on those two juicy blots.  13-8

My play would be to step up to the edge of the "prime" with 24/12 and bring down a builder with 13/11.  Unstacking the midpoint has to be the correct idea, but no need to continue on to the 8. With the racing lead, threatening to bolt the second runner should be worth more than adding a spare to the 8.
