Verdict

Alderbrook Lad and Five Out Of Five both arrive on hat-tricks but the former has a double penalty courtesy of Tuesday's victory at Sedgefield while the latter has been racing over longer trips. MORESTEAD is a quirky sort but this track suits his forcing tactics and he's back over his best trip and only 2lb higher than when successful over course and distance in May. He gets a tentative vote though Try Catch Me is capable on his day and can't be ignored.
