Verdict

Manomine is upped in class having won a low grade handicap at Yarmouth in May and will find this much tougher. The veteran Classic Punch has been practically tailed off on a couple of occasions since scoring at Beverley but Karam Albaari has plummeted down the weights and any strong support for him could prove signifcant. HIT THE JACKPOT has been competing in better company this season and was well supported at Haydock last time. He failed to oblige on that occasion but dropped another 3lb for this, today could be his day.
