YOUNG JACKIE landed a double at Wolverhampton in January and has been thereabouts on the all-weather since. She's gone close at this track before and may well be good enough on her return. Norwegian Reward ran a shocker at Kempton last time but the booking of Silvestre De Sousa takes the eye while Sehnsucht looks fairly handicapped, though has something to prove over the longer distance. Brown Pete is high enough in the weights now but The Ducking Stool has claims off her current mark given both wins to date came at this track. The Great Gabrial may finish closer on his handicap debut and looks best of the rest.
