Now looking better treated in the handicap SECRET WITNESS just about lands the call ahead of the on-form Sherjawy while Ray Of Joy can also be considered a danger. Twice close off this mark in the recent past the selection has run better than the bare results suggest in his last couple of outings. He doesn't win all that often but if up to his best he has every chance in this line-up. Sherjawy has a great strike rate here and continues in rude health having won twice in the last three foes, He's up in the weights again despite a reverse and that might just stop him going the one better. Ray Of Joy is still under a winnable mark based on his old form that's again despite going up in the weights after a defeat and although Thunderous Mood should go well for a shrewd yard he may have fitness to prove. This looks a decent race that can just go the way of Secret Witness.
