GOLD BEAU wasn't beaten far despite finishing only fourth at Hamilton last time. He'd scored at the same track before that and is reunited with winning partner Jacob Butterfield today. Salvatore Fury has a couple of lengths to find with the selection while Jinky remains 7lb higher than when scoring over track and trip earlier this month. The handicapper has taken no chances with Bearskin, raising him 8lb for winning a maiden in soft ground at Ripon, while Sartori is upped 5lb after scoring at the same track. Stablemates Sleeper Class and Spirit Of Alsace are both course winners and others to consider.
