Alderbrook Lad hasn't done a lot wrong over fences this summer while Muwalla won by six lengths over track and trip last month. Sendiym is still at the right end of the handicap, despite winning at Kelso 12 days ago, and he had Turf Trivia behind here at the start of the month while Think Its All Over was only beaten half-a-length at Ludlow on his chasing bow. TALKIN THOMAS has been killing time over hurdles as he has the size and scope to make a chaser. It will be disappointing if he can't go close in this company as he has run well fresh in the past and he makes much more appeal than Brady, who is now tried in blinkers.
