Lucy Alexander may have her hands full with Bathwick Junior, a winner at Chepstow in November but in very poor form in two subsequent starts when pulled up. Stag Hill is a rare winner but didn't perform badly when last seen over hurdles and has had a couple of recent runs on the Flat. Delphi Mountain has been undone by poor jumping in his last two starts but DALLIANCE, who was in decent form last summer, will be pleased to get back on quicker ground and has dropped to a mark he looks capable of winning from. Allerton scored over fences in November and can race from a lower mark so could prove a threat.
