Foxtrot Jubilee was only beaten a head in similar company over track and trip in November. He has leading claims on that form but PABUSAR may just edge this. The latter has slipped 8lb down the weights since finishing sixth to Forest Edge in a higher grade sprint here in October and Jamie Osborne's charge should go very close if reproducing that run. Light From Mars went close at Wolverhampton in between a couple of poor efforts and Trojan Rocket has given signs that a return to form from him is imminent. Corporal Maddox would have a shout if taking part but was engaged to run here yesterday.
