Manomine will find this tougher than the three-runner affair he won at Lingfield last month. My Lord ran well again at Newbury last time and can go close with a similar effort but Greylami is better on the all-weather nowadays and his losing run stretches back to 2010. Yul Finegold remains without a win and the handicapper refuses to relent while stablemate LAUGHING JACK looked on the way back when fifth at Newmarket last month and duly obliged with a comfortable victory here on Friday. George Baker's charge can complete a quick double with his young rider's claim a bonus.
