Verdict

Alderbrook Lad completed a double on fast ground in August and he wouldn't have enjoyed the softer conditions at Sedgefield last time. Bob's Dream has returned to action in very good heart and had dropped to a lowly mark when beating Jim Tango at Sedgefield so a 3lb rise shouldn't prevent another big effort. The runner-up had earlier beaten him narrowly at Kelso and there's nothing between the pair here. Forestside is still a maiden over fences after 16 starts so this should go to LORD OF DRUMS, who landed a conditionals' event at Musselburgh in very good style so doesn't receive a penalty.
