Verdict

Alwaystheoptimist has been in terrific form since switching back to hurdles but is 8lb higher than when scoring at Wincanton nine days ago. Dolatulo won three on the bounce before coming up against Saint Roque at Worcester in June while Kilmurvy won't be far away if fully wound-up. A similar comment applies to Who's Cross and Dollar Bill but we may take a chance on the fitness of COLEBROOKE. The ground will definitely suit Renee Robeson's five-year-old and he looks capable of winning in this grade off his current mark. Magnifique Etoile can't be ignored with his yard in sparkling form but he has a lot of weight to carry after a long absence.
