Verdict

Patience has ran out with Bert The Alert, who has returned a losing favourite on his last three starts. He was only beaten a short-head here last time but ARLEY HALL looks a safer proposition. Brian Ellison's filly ended the Flat season with victory at Redcar in November and is unexposed on the Polytrack. Honey Of A Kitten won over a mile here earlier this month but has a bit to find on today's terms as does Yourinthewill, who hasn't looked like winning since scoring at Wolverhampton over a year ago.
