Taking into account his rider's claim, JUNO THE MUFFINMAN is getting 22lb from the in-form Not Til Monday and that may be enough for the four-year-old to get back to winning ways. He may not have stayed 2m4f at Worcester last time and has held his own in better company since the turn of the year. Not Til Monday is a danger, however, having justified short odds at Fakenham earlier this month but Ghaabesh and Quarton lacks a recent run and the other pair appear to have plenty to do at the weights.
