GUNG HO JACK bounced back with a win over track and trip last time. He remains on a winning mark compared to his earlier successes having been raised only 3lb and is preferred to First Class. The latter came good over 7f here last month but Harrogate Fair finished second over course and distance recently and could prove a bigger threat. Perfect Venture looks best of the rest dropping back down in trip.
