Verdict

Arashi never figured at Nottingham last time but had landed a double over track and trip before that. He beat JEZZA on one of those occasions but the latter re-opposes on better terms and is taken to turn the tables and come out best this time. Markami won over 1m5f before running as though something was amiss at this track last month while Goldan Jess won over hurdles in August but has been raised 9lb for an earlier win on the Flat at Ayr. Dumbfounded could be thereabouts once again but usually finds at least one too good.
