Verdict

Mountain Peak won two minor handicaps at Kempton last summer and went up a total of 13lb. He made a decent reappearance at Lingfield and he's definitely improved since his early runs on Turf. JACKPOT ROYALE has only had five starts and was in the lead at this trip when tackling a mile at Windsor. He's by Sixties Icon so is entitled to improve with age and can take this. Maggie Jonks has improved with each run and makes her handicap debut after staying on nicely at Redcar but Agar's Plough is taking time to come down the ratings. Desert Trip has changed stables since just failing to make all over a mile on his handicap debut at Kempton.
