Plenty with claims in this. Royal Sea is one as he beat good yardstick Neige D'Antan here last time and Silver Alliance has a decent shout under today's apprentice. Resplendent Alpha is just preferred to Apache Glory but the vote goes to BREAKHEART. He's dropped in class after a close-up fourth at Kempton on Monday and a similar effort should be good enough to get the better of today's opposition. Tyrur Ted is another with a chance but he was engaged to run here yesterday.
