G'dai Sydney made experience count to score at Stratford and it would be no surprise to see Peter Bowen's five-year-old give another good account. Lucky Thirteen was acquired cheaply at the sales but Richard Phillips' runners are always respected at this level, while Paul Henderson has been among the winners of late so Sava Bridge is watched in the market. OLDEDDIETHEREBEL is related to a couple of winning hurdlers and he could be good enough to score on debut. His yard had a winner at Roscommon earlier in the month and it appears significant that they have made the long journey across from the West of Ireland. It's been a couple of seasons since David Bridgwater last trained a winner in this sphere and Uiop, who is a son of a Grade 1 winning hurdler in France, attempts to arrest that losing run.
