JACK MY BOY is holding his form well and went close in one of these sprint series handicaps over course and distance last Saturday. Welease Bwian finished well behind and David Evan's charge looks sure to run his race again. Tidal's Baby came within a short-head of landing one of these events a fortnight ago with My Own Way Home and Above The Stars behind and can figure while Mother Jones and Billy Red are back on winning marks if at their best. Marshall Art got off the mark at Southwell last time but this is tougher having been raised 5lb for that success.
