Alderbrook Lad has been in good form and was second over 2m4f here last time. He's probably high enough in the weights now but should run his race again. Quadriller's only win over hurdles came in a seller but he may do better over fences while Rocky Elsom won here over the smaller obstacles in January and is another with untapped potential. MOORLANDS JACK got no further than the first fence when favourite at Worcester last time having won at that track earlier. He may be worth another chance here and is preferred to Next Sensation and the returning Fair Bramble.
