Verdict

JUPITER REX hadn't shown too much before arriving here eight days ago where he attracted support and demolished his rivals who included Bernard, who was 15l back in second. The assessor will have his say but in the meantime a 7lb penalty shouldn't prevent a quick follow-up. The runner-up can hardly be expected to turn the tables though that was only his second start since May 2011 so he should get much closer. Waywood Princess has won twice at Wetherby including when ploughing through the mud at Christmas. Her 8lb rise is negated by Harry Challoner's claim so she can get competitive but Hazy Dawn keeps attracting support without giving her supporters much to cheer and Midnight Lira looks too high in the weights.
