Verdict

IRISH JUGGER beat First Rock over C&D last time and the same outcome is expected here. Rod Millman's charge is worse off at the weights today, but never looked like being caught once in front and a follow-up is anticipated. Calculating looks too high in the weights but he beat Simonside at this track last August and the latter is better on turf nowadays. Shifting Gold won here in January and has claims having scored over hurdles since, but Gaselee needs a longer trip to show his best.
