JAFRA is a speculative selection to land this weak looking seller ahead of the likes of King Of The Moors and It's A Dream. The winner of a Beverley handicap on his penultimate start, he disappointed last time having raced keenly on a slightly easier surface which may well have been his undoing. King Of The Moors makes most appeal on the ratings. His jockey looked to have made a mistake tactically last time when opting to come stands side at Hamilton and it pay be best to put a line through that line of form. It's A Dream tackles ten furlongs for the first time here. The manner in which he stayed on over nine furlongs last time would indicate an additional furlong would not hinder him. Evelith Regent has not scored in nine starts on the flat. He is a bumper winner and it could be that he needs a trip in excess of this to score. Packers Hill was an eye-catching fourth on his penultimate start but has shown signs that he thinks about the job on hand in the past. He was not suited by race conditions at Musselburgh on Sunday but in a lesser grade of seller he could provide some each way value. Jafra is given the nod to come home in front.
