Connections are trying to strike while the iron is hot with Laverre, who is chasing a hat-trick after wins at Warwick and Nottingham. Lucy Wadham's filly has gone up another 4lb for her latest success, however, which means she has to give 13lb to LEITZU if Charles Bishop's claim is included. Mick Channon's four-year-old was placed in two out of three starts over hurdles earlier this year and should find this trip more suitable after patently finding 1m2f too sharp on her return to the Flat at Beverley. Money Money Money has won twice on Polytrack this year but her form on turf last season was modest in the extreme.
