A high draw could be an advantage in this with the ground riding soft and MONSIEUR JAMIE will have only one between him and the stands' rail. A winner here in May, he came back to form on an easy surface at Lingfield and might be capable of defying a 6lb higher mark. Lupo D'Oro is another course and distance winner who will act on the ground. He's starting to come down the weights again but Chester scorer Da'Quonde has a low draw to overcome and is no certainty to confirm latest running with reliable veteran Haajes. Even Stevens, Clubland and Hazelrigg are others starting towards the far side so Mister Manannan and Oil Strike may be the pick of the remainder.
