CREW CUT scored over course and distance last time with Forest Edge and Elna Bright behind. He won with a bit to spare and may well go in again. Elna Bright will be winning off his current mark soon and should be noted if supported in the betting and Hamoody has been in fine form over 5f of late and can figure. Blue Jack is upped in grade on the back of a win at Lingfield and will find this tougher, however, while Kakatosi has looked back in the handicapper's grip since scoring at the same track in December.
