Pucon has been in good form but is still climbing the weights and the softer going would have to be a worry today. The ground won't be a problem for MONSIEUR JAMIE and the top weight should give supporters a run for their money again with Windsor scorer Ladweb having finished well beaten off his new mark at Nottingham. Novabridge isn't badly handicapped but his latest win came in Jersey and form there rarely translates back to the mainland. Welease Bwian has ability but has cost supporters plenty this year and is likely to find at least one too good again.
