Verdict

JO'BURG is clear of his rivals on official ratings and better off with Extraterrestrial than when beating Richard Fahey's nine-year-old by three-quarters-of-a-length at Doncaster on the last occasion he was dropped into a seller. It's difficult to oppose David O'Meara's charge as the three-year-old Plunder couldn't justify favouritism in a weaker claimer at Leicester when last seen and last year's winner, Moheebb, has changed stables since and appears to have gone backwards. King Pin did win a similar contest over course and distance in the spring but has a bit to find at the weights today, though is still preferred to hurdler Super Collider of the others.
