Verdict

Jonathan England has won four times on Alba King, three times around here. But his form over fences has been erratic to say the least. Twill Stand To Us may find this an insufficient test of stamina while Muwalla hasn't shown a great deal so far over the larger obstacles and was beaten in a seller over hurdles last time. BENNYS QUEST is hardly a good thing under a penalty judged on his overall form but he at least arrives in form after a victory at Newton Abbot and must go close. Merry Minster needs more while Ginger's Lad was a long way behind Alba King at Southwell last month.
