Opus Maximus won at Wolverhampton on Saturday night but will have to carry a penalty in this. West End Lad has won his last two starts over C&D and ran well over 1m2f at Nottingham last time but Mrs Greeley may be in the handicapper's grip now. Yojimbo is in good form and has to go on the short-list but the vote goes to JORDAURA, who is also at the top of his game. He acts on any ground and is still reasonably treated on his best form.
