Ballabrook made all to win twice over fences before running below his best at Kelso last time when not able to dominate. He's not certain to do so here either with PIN D'ESTRUVAL in the field. Matt Sheppard's charge fell prey to some careless jumping on his first two starts for his current yard but went close over C&D last month when putting in a clear round. That should have boosted his confidence and he gets the vote. Sadler's Star and Perfect Reward have shown little so far over fences and Dean's Grange is making his chasing debut.
