One More Dinar was raised 8lb after winning a lesser contest over track and trip last month and Loughalder is 9lb higher than when winning at Chepstow. Tin Pot Man is only 5lb higher than when scoring over 2m5f at Ffos Las, however, while Power Pack Jack would have a chance in this grade if back to his best, though has disappointed this term. JUPITER REX was pulled up on his only previous try over fences but he'll have had plenty of schooling since and has won his last two starts over timber at Taunton. He's the type his trainer normally excels with and should take all the beating today if his jumping holds up.
