Verdict

The likely soft ground could see more than one of these sprinters back at their best and that includes Judge 'N Jury. He showed signs of a resurgence at York last time and is well handicapped on his best form but so is STRIKE UP THE BAND. Dandy Nicholls' charge was headed close home by today's rival Le Toreador at Thirsk recently but is fancied to turn the tables on this slower surface. Foxy Music will handle the conditions though he was well beaten on his reappearance and may need another outing to put him spot on, while Mayoman and Ginger Ted are others to consider.
