Race Verdict

Tony Kelly appears to be getting a good tune out of THE THIRSTY BRICKY and, with underfoot conditions set to suit, it is tough to envisage the son of Saddlers' Hall out of the frame. The C&D winner was seen to good effect when scoring over this trip at Hexham eight days ago and a similar performance under a 7lb penalty is taken to suffice. Alpha One must come into the reckoning and is expected to go close if his jumping issues have been addressed, while Mon Chevalier completes the shortlist.

Selection: The Thirsty Bricky        Danger: Alpha One        Alternative: Mon Chevalier
