Jacks Grey was due to run at Uttoxeter last night and looks to have plenty of weight in any case. But there are possibilities about Brassbound, only beaten half-a-length at Stratford last week, and Ajman has been showing a bit more lately. Pour Changer won a novices' handicap here last month but the two to concentrate on may be FAIRYINTHEWIND and Flew The Nest. The latter is likely to do a lot better now going handicapping but the former gets the nod having faced a stiff task at the weights at Wincanton last time. He'd looked progressive earlier when landing a maiden hurdle by seven lengths over today's course and distance.
