Triple Dream has gone close the last twice but is now 10lb higher than when scoring at Newbury during the summer. SIR PEDRO finished behind the latter at Lingfield last time but failed to get a clear run in the closing stages and is taken to come out best on this occasion with normal luck in-running. Threes Grand has struggled since winning at York back in August while though both Moorhouse Lad and Master Bond ran well at Southwell last time, neither have won on the Polytrack so far.
