Gold Ingot's profile is rather erratic to say the least but he did show ability over hurdles and Alan King has been doing well with his select band of summer jumpers. He commands respect as does Kalamill, who stayed on late here just three days ago to take the minor placing behind Watered Silk and should benefit from that initial fencing venture. Course winner Get Home Now needs to be considered as he hails from one of the best summer jumping yards around but it's hard to ignore the claims of AZZA. David Pipe's inmate displayed some high-class form over timber and receives a massive 23lb from all rivals thanks to sex and age allowances. She looks an interesting fencing recruit and should be more than good enough with a clear round.
