JUBILANT QUEEN never figured in a Class 3 sprint at Pontefract last time but she'd won at Windsor under Richard Hughes before that and and is only 4lb higher today. Wooden King ran well here on his latest start and is another to consider off his current mark, while Spray Tan was placed at this track last time but is upped in class for this. Billyrayvalentine has yet to show any improvement for his slide down the handicap but Amenable has shown signs of a revival recently and may get involved.
