MEDIA JURY scored at this level when beating Under Par over track and trip in January. He finished ahead of previous winner Rise To Glory when second at Kempton last time so gets the token vote. Jonnie Skull is quite capable of popping up in this grade if the mood takes him and there was little to separate Dingaan and Metropolitan Chief behind Rightcar at Kempton a week ago. First Rebellion may prove best of the rest in a low grade affair.
