Aldermoor went close over 7f here last time though he remains 4lb higher than when scoring over C&D in February. The betting suggested Lastkingofscotland was expected to take advantage of his slide down the weights at Wolverhampton last time and he only missed out by a nose. He'll go close again but a chance is taken on EMMAN BEE, third to Medici Time at Newmarket in August and 7lb lower today with an apprentice's claim taken into account. Mutliple C&D winner Speak The Truth could prove best of the rest.
