Whitby Jet ended a long losing run when scoring over track and trip last month and is upped 4lb. He's won off higher marks in the past and should figure again but GABRIAL THE BOSS makes more appeal. The latter is a course and distance winner and scored at Kempton last month beating the re-opposing Mahadee, who has subsequently won at the same track. Understory popped up in last year's renewal though finished well behind fourth-placed Zaeem here last time while Aldeburgh and Sweet Marwell are both unknowns over this longer trip.
