The race for the jockey's title steps up again with Hughes and Hanagan going head to head. Hughes' presence on the well-weighted Hypnosis is eye-catching but Noel Wilson's charge is out of form so unless the market speaks highly of his chances he might be best left. Hanagan rides RIFLESIONNE who lands the vote having performed well off this, his last winning mark, on the last three outings. Grand Stitch might be a danger if running as well as he did when scoring last time but his profile suggests that is not a strong possibility.
