Verdict

ALDERBROOK LAD is clearly going to make a better chaser than hurdler and should be capable of defying a penalty after winning at Worcester last week. Nothing else really leaps off the page though Cocoa Key has hinted at ability and is probably on a fair mark. Harris Garden may be capable of improvement but Solway Dornal was still beaten 34 lengths when third at Cartmel over a much longer trip on Saturday and the other pair appear very moderate.
