Jamie Snowden has his string firing on all cylinders and turns out Graduation Night again quickly after an effortless win in a novices' handicap at Chepstow on Wednesday. A double penalty will make life a little tougher here, however. I'm The Decider won twice at Stratford in August but has taken a hike in the weights and all of his chase wins have come on fast ground. Massini Sunset, King Jack and O Malley's Oscar all have the form to figure if fully wound-up following a break, while there is probably more to come from Sum Laff. But the handicapper has taken a real chance with MAGOT DE GRUGY, who returns from a lengthy absence but will love the ground and represents a trainer who has excelled with similar types in the past.
