Plenty with claims in this but Night Alliance has a tough task raised 8lb and upped in class after scoring at Ffos Las. Goring One is another who needs more having dead-heated for first at Wincanton and There's No Panic may be best watched for now after a poor effort here on his comeback. Both Wiesentraum and Annacotty arrive on the back of wins at Fakenham and Kempton respectively and have decent claims as they attempt to follow-up, but another chance goes to BALLYPATRICK. He unseated close home at Huntingdon on his reappearance having been hampered but had looked a progressive chaser last season and much better is expected today.
