Bryony Frost steered Alberta to a surprise victory here in February, ahead of Le Capricieux and Shining Romeo, but switches to Neil King’s Regulation, who sports blinkers on his return from a break and is attractively weighted. All Is Good was only fourth at Ludlow after winning at Hereford in January and may be a few pounds too high while New Millennium will need to up his game to get off the mark and Celestial Path has proved a disappointment over timber, though it would be no surprise to see him in the firing-line off a lowly mark. DINSDALE did well to stay in touch with a well-handicapped rival at Fakenham last time, his first run since a wind operation, and any improvement on that would put him in the picture.
