Jaeger Train has been placed in all three starts but was nine lengths behind the winner when runner-up over track and trip last month. Incur Four Faults finished even further behind in the same race while the likes of Oriental Maid and The Brockster failed to beat a rival at Wolverhampton on their respective debuts. HANDWOVEN finished a lot closer when making the frame on the Polytrack in October. The lack of a recent run is not much of a concern in this company and he's the one to beat if handling the surface.
