Verdict

Six-figure purchase GRAND ALBERT is taken to build on his Bangor bumper effort and go one better. He appears to have a good chance in receipt of weight from the last-time-out winners West Warhorse (second choice) and Let’s Go Joe. The other main player is Chatshow Tv, provided he turns up here instead of Warwick.[Steve Boow]
