HAMOODY has been in winning form in sellers on the all-weather. David Nicholls' charge has a few pounds in hand with Alaskan Bullet at today's weights and a hat-trick looks his for the taking given he's a multiple winner on the Turf. Beckermet has cut little ice in recent claimers and has plenty to find with the selection in this while Dickie Le Davoir finished ahead of Opus Dei at Wolverhampton recently but is another with a tough task at the weights.
