Drombeg West is upped 11lb as he bids for a hat-trick. JACK ALBERT has been raised the same amount after scoring at Uttoxeter on the back of a win over course and distance but that may not be enough to stop the latter as Dianne Sayer's charge still looks to have more in the locker. Plumpton winner Laughton Park is at his best on fast going but Ben Cee Pee M is still improving, though seems better at Sedgefield than anywhere else. Madame De Guise opened her account in soft ground over a shorter trip at Chepstow and Letmego is another to consider. Church Field and South Stack arrive out of sorts, though both have the past form to figure.
