Summer jumping promises to suit Lord Landen judged on his victory at Newton Abbot but he's not exactly consistent. Lemon's Gent won at Uttoxeter around this time last year but has been in the handicapper's grip since and has been raised 2lb since his latest second at Kempton. Take Of Shoc'S has lost his way again and Spoil Me's jumping is still a concern while Capisci was pulled up when chasing a hat-trick at Taunton last month. MOORLANDS JACK stays further but is effective at this trip and likes it here. He might be worth an interest on his preferred ground, despite a break.
