Jay Bee Blue included a win over track and trip when landing a recent double and should make another bold bid despite 6lb extra. Powerful Pierre avoids a penalty for his latest win in an apprentices races at Wolverhampton and should also be in the firing-line once again. GREEK SPIRIT is another recent winner at Wolverhampton and has been upped 7lb for her trouble. But she has plenty of scope and Jeremy Noseda's filly can go in again. Brother Tiger is another lightly-raced type capable of better.
