Verdict

Johnny Splash made all over 6f at Lingfield last time and is upped 5lb for that success. Pharoh Jake is consistent at this level but remains 6lb higher than his latest win in December. Quality Art is less reliable but capable on his day and is closely matched with Max The Machine on earlier running at Southwell. NOVABRIDGE is a rare winner these days but found only one too good over track and trip three weeks ago so Neil Mulholland's charge gets a token vote to come good in this.
