Verdict

GOLDTREK beat King Brex over course and distance two runs ago and again ran well when second over 3m1f here last month. She's gone up a further 7lb since but looks to be heading in the right direction and is still getting plenty of weight from the returning Winter Alchemy and Golden Sparkle, who has been placed of six of her seven hurdle starts but fell at Sedgefield last month. Takaatuf only found the prolific Home Run too good over 2m here last time and has to be respected on that form but the others would have to improve on recent efforts to get involved.
