This is a big step up in trip for Noble Jack, who scored here twice last month, and previous efforts over hurdles suggest stamina is not his forte. Mediterranean Sea has won at Lingfield though saves her best for Southwell nowadays so the vote goes to SIR BOSS, who scored under today's amateur the last time he competed in one of these events. Resplendent Ace isn't out of this and Rockweiller can be given a chance back in this company with Simon Walker on board.
