Forecasts

Sometimes Always (8/13), Major Dundee (5/2), Dorking Lad (9/2), Ulverston (13/2), Arcadian Pearl (11/1), Glen Vine (12/1), Animal (16/1), Kennack Bay (28/1), Sleve Donard (100/1), Chance Finale (100/1), Rickety Gate (150/1)

SOMETIMES ALWAYS made it fourth time lucky over hurdles when scoring at Wetherby last month, and given the manner of the victory, is a confident selection to follow up back in novice company here. Major Dundee looks sure to be in the mix for Alan King and can chase the selection home, ahead of Dorking Lad and Arcadian Pearl.
