GREGORI has now won three of his last four outings after making all once again at this track earlier in the month. Nothing looked like catching him last time so Brian Meehan's charge is fancied to overcome another 5lb rise and continue his winning ways. Agerzam is getting closer but a maiden race victory at Kempton remains his only success to date so Jungle Bay makes more appeal back over the 6f where he beat Smokethatthunders last month. Enderby Spirit ran better than his finishing position suggests when fifth at Kempton and he's preferred to recent 5f winner Pull The Pin of the remainder.
