Jigsaw Financial completed a double at Worcester in July but has found one too good in a couple of starts since and has edged up in the weights again lately. He may be vulnerable against the likes of Detroit Red, who has already won twice here and is in good form, and BATHWICK MAN. Preference is for the latter, who has won five times in this grade and looked to be on the way back when only beaten a head at Bangor last week. He's well handicapped at present. Staigue Fort is still a maiden and appears one-paced so may struggle to get involved under top weight.
