A useful handicapper in his heyday, Mac's Power hasn't won since 2010 and is dropped in class for this. Soft ground is not ideal for him or Titus Gent and Ortac Rock is another who would prefer a faster surface. JACK MY BOY finished behind the latter on the Polytrack earlier but posted a better effort when fourth at Warwick last time. He gets the speculative vote to come out best especially as Taurus Twins is better over the minimum trip.
