Billy Red finished ahead of Valmina when scoring over 5f here last time and is not out of this despite a 5lb rise. Rigolleto had Rowe Park and a below-par Captain Kendall well behind when fourth over track and trip and can figure. Italian Tom has yet to score this year but has dropped down the weights as a consequence and Jungle Bay should be thereabouts once again. But a chance is taken that SEEK THE FAIR LAND can reverse latest running with the latter and come out best given he's now 14lb lower than when scoring at Wolverhampton at the start of the year.
