Jonjo O'Neill's string is going well but it would need a dramatic reversal of fortunes for the disappointing Space Telescope to recapture the winning thread in this. Stablemate Surf And Turf may need another run to put him straight while Great Mates is still paying the price for a couple of wins at Worcester a year ago. King Ozzy has been off the track for three months since finishing third at Southwell so, with the ground still riding fast, we're taking SWEET WORLD to follow up his Hereford win two weeks ago as that came against slightly better opposition than this.
