Verdict

ALBERTO'S DREAM was carrying a 7lb penalty for his easy Lingfield victory when sauntering home at Leicester on Friday. He's due to go up another 16lb so coming here with a 14lb penalty and his rider's claim to help his cause should result in a very quick hat-trick. Isle Road won between the flags in Ireland before a fair run in a Downpatrick hunter chase ,though that was last May. King Cool has shown little sign of ability in four starts over fences while Upbeat Cobbler, who completed a hat-trick in 2016, has been badly out of form.
