MISTER JONES arrives out of form but is dropped in class. He may prove good enough in a really poor contest. Saddlers Mot was placed at Hexham in November and has a chance on that form while stablemates Executive's Hall and Hi Candy both scored at Cartmel last year. Ghaabesh was placed at Market Rasen in December and Secret Desert won over fences back in 2012. Exit To Freedom, Stand Clear and Sedgemoor Top Bid have all tumbled down the weights without showing any improvement as yet.
