An uninspiring Class 6 sprint which may fall the way of John O'Shea's veteran campaigner, THE JAILER. He hasn't necessarily got the best form in the book of these but looks the most likely to deliver his running over 5f on soft ground. He does arrive in decent heart too after recording satisfactory performances on all three starts this season. Conditions will also suit Griffin Point, a much-improved second at Newbury last time in a higher grade sprint which reads well in the context of this race. However, he was beaten in a Windsor seller the time before, making his overall profile hard to evaluate. Dixie Gwalia is respected off topweight but still rather looks a horse in search of a trip to some extent, although he's certainly shortlist material.
