Fathom Five was winning for the first time since 2010 when victorious at Southwell last week and doesn't appeal carrying 6lb extra. Both Pharoh Jake and Ivestar went close on their latest starts and should figure again while Reginald Claude can race off a lower mark than when scoring at Wolverhampton in July with an apprentice's claim taken into account. NEW RICH won over track and trip in September and he gets the speculative vote as Eve Johnson-Houghton's three-year-old has more scope than the rest of these.
