A wide draw isn’t ideal but a record of two wins from three including one at Kempton and one over a mile is enough for me to chance the Andrew Balding runner in a race that looks to hold more quantity than quality. A 2lbs rise from his last victory is offset by a change in jockey meaning a 7lbs claim instead of a 5lbs claim and with only three runs on an all-weather surface he is still open to further improvement.

Jumping Jack has made the frame in all three runs at the course and Lacan is a dual course and distance winner, while Golden Wedding, Gentlemen and Medicean El Diablo all have decent records at the course and none can be entirely discounted given the nature of the race.
