Swaledale Lad sluiced up in a handicap at Bangor, finally fulfilling earlier promise. But he faces a different task here giving 6lb to BIG WATER. Alan Swinbank's charge looked a sure-fire future winner when second to Duke Of Navan at Kelso in January and confirmed that impression when runner-up to Scarlet Fire over this course and distance 10 days ago. Winning pointer Ben Akram and Flat winner Lysino may be best of the rest.
