MAJOR JACK posted his best effort yet when runner-up at Leicester on his reappearance. He finished ahead of a subsequent winner so the form looks solid and Roger Charlton's charge should be opening his account in this company. Roly Tricks failed to show any improvement at this track last time after a decent effort at Newmarket while Lead A Merry Dance was still beaten a long way when runner-up at Bath last month. Lady Cooper hasn't raced since 2012 and Black Widow makes little appeal on her debut.
