Jacbequick has been much improved this year and bids for a hat-trick of course and distance wins. But he'll need to be quickly away from a wide draw to take up his usual prominent position. Leicester winner Adore could also have been better drawn, though she is progressive and her powerful yard have a fine strike rate here. Gratzie also won at Leicester on his latest start but Sooqaan was a disappointing favourite at this track having won at Thirsk before that. Seven Lucky Seven also posted a poor effort when sent off favourite last time so another chance goes to Yarmouth winner KISANJI, dropped in class after going close in a tougher race at Newmarket.
