Filament Of Gold carries a penalty for scoring here on his return to action. But he's worse off on today's terms with the runner-up NEEDLESS SHOUTING and Mick Channon's charge is taken to reverse running and come out best. Upholland is another to consider as he's gone close in both starts this year on the Polytrack but Jazri remains 9lb higher than when scoring at Kempton back in August. Goleador gets first-time blinkers applied for his reappearance and it would be no surprise to see a better effort from him.
