All of Karaka Jack's five wins to date have come over 7f. Le Chat D'Or has a better chance of lasting home and should be thereabouts again as he found only ANOTHER FOR JOE too good over track and trip in August. The latter is 2lb higher today but that may not be enough to prevent Jim Goldie's charge going in again. Supreme Luxury and High Resolution are other course and distance winners with claims but both are making their seasonal debuts and will be better for the outing.
