Verdict

PASTORAL JET remains in fine form having won a classified event in October, his second win over C&D. He can go in again with Aaron Jones taking 3lb off his back. Rapid Water scored over track and trip earlier this month but is immediately dropped 4lb in the weights after a modest seventh at Lingfield last time while Menadati remains 5lb higher than his win at Chepstow in September. Lord of The Dance may prove best of the rest as he's tumbled down the handicap and will have come on for his recent belated reappearance.
