Admiralty has decent claims as he scored easily at Wolverhampton in October but is having his first outing since. The veteran Jake The Snake is hard to catch right but capable on his day and finished well ahead of Ted's Brother when third over track and trip last week. THE GURU OF GLOOM beat an odds-on favourite at Wolverhampton earlier this month when finally making the most of a tumble down the weights and Bill Muir's charge can follow-up now he's found his form again.
