Dom Lukka and Go Amwell, first and third over course and distance last month, are closely matched on the revised terms and should be thereabouts again as the second has won since at Ffos Las. Flemi Two Toes, Lombardy Boy and Elegant Olive all look held while Award Winner only seems to win when ridden by McCoy. Sea Cadet is 6lb higher than when second at Fontwell but NIGHT ALLIANCE looks well treated on his best form and, after a promising comeback at Ffos Las, is taken to come out on top today. Lookout Mountain had a hard race at Wetherby on Friday and it will be a surprise if he turns up again here.
