STAR OF VALOUR scored over track and trip before finding one too good back here with Weloof well beaten. Lynn Siddall’s charge should make another bold bid in his current form. Dreamseller also scored over course and distance in September but returns off a 7lb higher mark while Gavi Di Gavi has been thereabouts over 7f but has something to prove judged on earlier attempts at today’s distance. Takeonefortheteam is another regularly in the mix though will need some luck in-running drawn out wide.
