Green Bank was beaten 10 lengths when attempting a hat-trick at Market Rasen and races off the same mark here, though did finish a long way ahead of subsequent Sedgefield winner Pyjama Game at that track earlier. Whistling Senator made it three from three at Worcester last month and should be a factor again as long as the ground doesn't deteriorate but WATCH HOUSE won by a wide margin back over fences last time and Ally Stirling again takes off 7lb. He's gone up 14lb in the weights since but still has a feather weight in this and may be worth following until beaten. Brough Academy was a beaten favourite again at Fontwell two weeks ago and Stormyisland Ahead is still struggling to recapture his best.
