CHJIMES has won eight times between 5f and 7f on the Polytrack here and has slipped down to a tempting mark. He should be spot on now after a couple of outings since a lay-off and the booking of Robbie Winston is another plus. He gets the nod ahead of You'relikemefrank who is holding his form well and looks likely to make another bold bid. Bluebok has been running well at Kempton and could also figure, while Silver Prelude is not without a chance if back to his best.
