Verdict

JIGAJIG has been something of a revelation this season and can gain a fourth success of 2010 by confining Drumpellier and Lees Anthem to minor honours. Kevin Ryan's gelding has risen from a mark of 46 to today's mark of 69 but he may not be finished with yet despite being beaten a length into fourth at Ayr last time. He was having his third start in ten days on that occasion but returns to the scene of his most recent victory on the back of a short break and may be able to resume his upward curve. He won by three lengths from Lees Anthem that day and the runner-up has since come even closer to winning at Newcastle and he should give his running but a 4lb higher mark won't help. Dower Glen could threaten whilst Drumpellier has been in form but she has been running over six furlongs and may not quite have the pace to cope with the speedsters on her return to racing over the minimum and Jigajig may lead them a merry dance.
