Jazz Master won well over track and trip last time but beat little and a 9lb hike in the weights looks excessive. Autun isn't getting any sympathy from the handicapper either as he's looked on a high enough mark all season. Xinbama and Jupiter Storm have both struggled since landing doubles earlier in the year and an 8lb rise for winning at Epsom proved beyond Nave on his latest start as he was well beaten at Newmarket. POMPEIA posted a better effort at the same track back in June and given she's less exposed than most in these, Ralph Beckett's filly gets a tentative vote.
