Order has plenty of weight for what he's achieved to date and makes his handicap debut while Jappeli disappointed over this trip at Gowran after scoring over 6f on heavy going at Listowel. Jumbo Steps is still a maiden after 20 starts but has dropped to a fair mark as a consequence and has to be on the short-list along with Crystal Wings, despite the latter's moderate run at Gowran on Friday. Crystal Harmony has only had six starts and looks on the upgrade but this can go to FAST ON, who only surrendered the lead in the closing stages over a mile at Gowran on Friday so this trip looks ideal. Big Bad Billy Bob has only won once in 23 starts but generally performs with credit and this is by no means beyond him.
