WELL SHARP, a very useful performer on the Flat, looked a decent prospect over hurdles when making a winning debut at Wetherby in May. Provided he's fully wound-up following a break, he should have few problems doubling his tally here. Forgotten Symphony scrambled home over a shorter trip here last month but may struggle to give weight to the selection while Doyenne Dream is proving difficult to win with, though does have ability. Landenstown Star is thoroughly exposed and the others are even more difficult to recommend.
