In depth

Verdict

With his main rivals failing to complete, Dreamy George was left with an easy task of landing the odds at Fakenham last time. But this will prove a tougher test given My Idea won over these fences last month and Diocles was an impressive winner at Catterick on his penultimate start. Deciding Moment scored at Wincanton before finding life more difficult off a higher mark at Newbury. He could still figure in this, but the vote goes to ALDERBROOK LAD. Micky Hammond's charge couldn't prevent Bincombe from landing a double at Haydock last month but finished well clear of the third and a similar effort should see him come out best today.
