PUDSEY HOUSE was back to his best over course and distance last time and was unlucky to be headed on the line. John Wade's charge can go one better in what looks a less competitive affair. Auberge posted a better effort at Musselburgh recently and should also be involved in the finish given the remainder are struggling for form at present. They includes Ballyreesode, twice a winner in Ireland but well beaten for new connections so far and Carmela Maria, a winner at Southwell during the summer. Alf The Audacious has had just the one outing since March and may finish closer today.
