Verdict

LORD JAY JAY jumped his rivals ragged under Kielan Woods at Stratford last time. A 7lb higher mark will make life tougher here but he's likely to get an uncontested lead again and may still take some pegging back. Zorro De La Vega won at Market Rasen last month and has been lightly-raced in recent years. He hasn't a lot of scope for further improvement, however, while Playing With Fire is best watched on his return from a break. The handicapper may have Sunday City back in his grip but Wake Board could be interesting if he puts his best foot forward, though has been pulled up in two of his last three outings.
