Verdict

ALTERNATIVE CHOICE landed a hat trick on his recent return to action over C&D. He has registered all three wins by a narrow margin allowing him to stay one step ahead of the handicapper and can go in again here off a 4lb higher mark. Dubburg is weighted to reverse earlier form with Straversjoy and should figure, while Port Hill has got his act together now and is another to consider. Amical Risks and Derby Desire have a bit to find with the selection on recent form however.
