A winner at Bath earlier, PRECISION FIVE wasn't beaten that far when only sixth here last time. Robert Tart is good value for his 3lb claim and Jeremy Gask's charge can return to winning ways. Scary Movie hasn't raced since July and Shirataki looks a bigger threat having finished well ahead of Silver Lace and Understory when runner-up over course and distance last month. Mcbirney has slipped down the weights and posted a better effort last time but Whitby Jet was beaten only a length when fourth at this track and could prove the chief danger.
