Verdict

CLONUSKER is fancied to land a hat-trick after his latest success at Fontwell. He'd earlier scored over track and trip and had finished well ahead of Hold The Bucks when second here in December. The latter has won at this track subsequently but Linda Jewell's charge should have the upper hand once again. Jaja De Jau, Little Roxy and Maccabees also have something to find with the selection on earlier running and Qasser looks a bigger threat dropping down a grade on the back of a couple of placed efforts.
