Jezza has twice had a rear view of Tijori this summer but there may not be much between the pair on today's revised terms. Eshtyaaq has a chance on the form book but was due to run last night at Ffos Las while Candelita collected a penalty after winning a lesser contest over a shorter trip here eight days ago. HI NOTE is eased in grade after her latest third at Newbury. She rarely runs a bad race when the ground is good or faster and this looks within her capabilities.
