Thunder Ahead has an each-way chance with cheekpieces.
Lil GuffDaniel & Claire Kübler
Game filly who runs her race and should be in the mix as she has been all season, handles most conditions and nothing stands out as being miles ahead of her ability wise on form shown to date.
He's in good form but I wouldn't want it to dry up too much. He had some good form on the Flat and he proved at the backend of last season [over hurdles] that he does stay well.
Lake SandAli Stronge
Didn’t run too bad last time when we dropped him out. We will try different riding tactics today by running him forward. This is quite a competitive race for the grade, but fingers crossed he can run a solid race.
