This bunch don't inspire much confidence. Silver Alliance has failed to build on his victory at Wolverhampton in February and looked one-paced when fourth here last time. LAUGHING JACK is looking to end a long losing run but have may finally dropped far enough down the handicap and has a recent pipe-opener under his belt. He gets the speculative vote in a poor handicap. Alezanna and Saskia's Dream were both winners on the Polytrack last term but haven't threatened so far this year and the remainder are even harder to fancy.
