Mappin Time went close to catching the winner in a higher grade handicap over track and trip last week. Tim Easterby's sprinter can go close again with a similar effort. Jubilee Brig should also make another bold bid having finished well ahead of Bapak Chinta when runner-up at Lingfield. But VINCENTTI is finally back on a winning mark having tumbled down the weights last year and showed signs of a return to form with a second at Kempton on his latest start. Ron Harris' charge gets the nod with both Bogsnog and Intrepid likely to struggle upped in class.
