Verdict

Prohibition looks handicapped out of this as a consequence of last month's double and Jack's Revenge may well avenge his narrow margin defeat at the hands of the former as he can re-oppose on better terms. Just Five returned a 20/1 winner here last time and is 7lb higher today but Hierarch isn't out of this off his current mark and could go close. However, ELIJAH PEPPER is only 1lb higher than when winning over C&D in October and, given he's raced in better company since then, a return to this level could see him back in the winners' enclosure and David Barron's charge gets the nod.
