Verdict

Jive Master posted a better effort over 2m6f at Fontwell last time but whether he can reproduce that over today's minimum trip is open to question. APACHE DAWN has no problem with the distance as he scored over track and trip in May and finished second back here last month. Admittedly slightly disappointing last time, he gets another chance in this company. Darnborough is another course and distance winner though he's 9lb higher today while Mad Professor has something to find with the selection on latest running and Ginger's Lad is preferred.
