SEA CADET is taken to land his hat-trick while both Dennis The Legend and Forzy Origny warrant respect. The selection has landed back to back victories at Hexham and Huntington albeit with a six month interval. The first of those wins was back in May and the other in November. He has risen a further eleven pounds in the ratings which is sure to make life tough but he clearly goes well fresh so is worth staying on the right side of. Dennis The Legend has been a model of consistency throughout his career to date. He landed back to back victories at Exeter and Stratford last May and was not discredited after finishing second at Newton Abbot last time out. He comes here after a lengthy lay off and is sure to benefit for the outing. Forzy Origny is still only lightly raced and is open to further improvement. He scored on his debut over hurdles in his native France but has taken time to acclimatise since joining Alan King. That said he caught the after finishing third behind Lord Crewe at Chepstow last time out and is sure to be in the shake up. Sea Cadet still looks well treated and gets the vote.
