IT was one winner from two for Alan yesterday and he has Friday fancies from Musselburgh and Kempton.
There is a dearth of runners due to the unseasonal dry spell and GETTYSBURG ADDRESS makes the long trip from Gloucestershire to tackle only two rivals. A dual winner on decent ground over hurdles, Gettysburg Address looked home and hosed until being collared close home over fences at Bangor last time.
