Indian Tinker gained a deserved success here last time and could quite easily complete a double though his best efforts have been on easier ground so unless there is plenty of rain he may struggle. It Must Be Faith finished just over a length behind in that latter event and is 4lb better off so must have a fair chance of reversing the form. ALPHA DELTA WHISKY has been narrowly beaten in his last two starts, the latest in a slightly better race than this at Sandown. He doesn't win all that often but this looks a good opportunity. Sleepy Blue Ocean was in tremendous form last summer and went up in the weights accordingly but he's been competing well from this sort of mark and can get involved despite his big weight.
