This is an easy track but there are still doubts about Nadiya De La Vega and Jump City's ability to stay this far. Native Gallery and On Trend have been disappointing so far this term and Planet Of Sound is making his seasonal reappearance while the handicapper seems reluctant to relinquish his grip on Buddy Bolero. Relax returned to form over 3m2f at Ffos Las and will be forcing the pace here. He's 5lb higher now but still looks the biggest danger to GOOD ORDER. Tom George's is a consistent performer and appears to have struck up a good understanding with Alain Cawley. The partnership scored on its reappearance at Leicester and should be capable of handling the step up in grade here.
