MISTER JINGLES still looks fairly-handicapped and is fancied to win again for Amy Ryan; the list of dangers is headed by Briannsta, May Parkin and Dancing Welcome. The selection has a 4lb rise in the weights for his recent Wolverhampton win and that may not be enough to stop another success as he is still 6lb below his highest winning mark. He is well-drawn in stall 13, evidently gets on well with jockey Amy Ryan and a big run is expected. Course winner Under Fire is edging down the weights and is able to contest a 0-55 for the first time in ages, Just Jimmy has been edged up the weights for his second here last month, whilst Running Flush would look interesting with a bit of market support. Briannsta has a 3lb rise in the weights for a Wolverhampton win a month ago, Roman Maze and Joss Stick look thrown in on their old form, whilst Magic Queen is less exposed than her rivals but she is yet to show enough to suggest that she will win on her handicap debut. May Parkin was backed as if defeat was out of the question last time out at Dunstall Park however she was well-beaten and is now tried in the tongue-tie and blinkers combination. Not a strong race and preference is for the in-form Mister Jingles.
