Sudski Star is a regular visitor to these shores and rattled up a hat-trick in the spring. He's had a short break since but there's no reason why Patrick Griffin's six-year-old won't be thereabouts again. Got Attitude has also been in good form but doesn't have the scope of some of his rivals. DON'T TAKE ME ALIVE seemed to lose confidence after being badly hampered at an early stage at Aintree last time but this is easier and he'd looked promising earlier when third to the useful Turn Over Sivola at Huntingdon. Charlie Longsdon's five-year-old can come good today ahead of the disappointing Strongly Suggested and Engai, who stopped quickly at Newton Abbot last month.
