Mankini failed to peg back Laughing Jack when odds-on at Leicester last time but will go close to making amends here if staying the extra quarter-mile. But we prefer BADEA, who is well treated at present judged on close second at Beverley and has no stamina doubts. Spiekeroog won over 1m6f at Redcar last month but David O'Meara complicates matters by also fielding Morocco, though he may find this too far. The trip may also prove beyond Yarmouth runner-up Muzhil but the consistent Bobs Her Uncle could run into a place.
