Jeremy Gask runs three in this finale and the ground will suit New Leyf if the rains stay away. Inka Surprise is lightly-raced, as is Prince Regal. Jungle Bay won twice over this trip last year but has climbed the weights since. GRAVITATIONAL was second over course and distance off today's mark in a better race in August. He broke his duck at Yarmouth in the autumn and should win more races this year so we'll take a chance on his fitness. Extrasolar, Tight Fit and Mutafaakir could also figure if fully wound-up but Light From Mars is hard to catch right nowadays.
