LIFEJACKET needs to settle better but looks the type to do better now going handicapping and gets a tentative vote in an ordinary contest off a mark of 59. Storm Rider is equally unexposed and could also get involved while the booking of Jamie Spencer for Rock Of Leon catches the eye. He shaped with a bit more promise at Kempton last month and the slightly longer trip might suit. Sweetheart Abbey is a bit more exposed but has the form to figure in this lowly grade.
