A lack of recent winning form on offer, but WHERES JOHNNY has registered all three victories to date at this track. A fourth looks on the cards here as he had today's rival Don't Panic a couple of lengths behind when second over C&D a fortnight ago and Jamie Poulton's charge is taken to go one better dropped in class. Just Beware still looks a shade high in the weights judged on her recent placed efforts including a second to Marju King over track and trip and the latter has claims after failing to figure in a higher grade race last time.
