Verdict

VALLANI beat Dundock over 3m1f at Perth in August and his hat-trick bid was against much better opposition than this. Dropped a couple of pounds since, the top weight can recapture the winning thread here. Scriptwriter wasn't disgraced at Sedgefield last time but this heavy ground is a real worry for supporters of the once-useful 10-year-old. Dickie Henderhoop and Some Lad could make the frame again but Solis finished behind the selection last month and has been well beaten in a Hexham seller since.
