Verdict

ALDERBROOK LAD and Lexicon Lad have a similar rating over fences but the latter was due to run at Newton Abbot yesterday and would be most unlikely to turn up here if fulfilling that engagement. Micky Hammond's nine-year-old can make a successful return to hurdling, therefore, ahead of Sedgefield third Il Testone and Quick Brew. Allbarnone was second in a bumper here on his racecourse debut and could make the frame if taking to hurdles.
