All a question of whether or not Maoi Chinn Tire can defy his 6lb penalty and bring the bacon home yet again despite his welter burden. He appeared to have something in hand five days ago when scoring a third success in four starts at Thirsk and it's understandable connections are keen to strike again. Course and distance winners Madrasa and Blue Top are respected but still look a little too close to the likely market leader at the weights but UNDERWRITTEN looks attractively treated. He scored with plenty in hand the last day at Lingfield on the Polytrack, is effective on good turf ground and Aaron Jones has made a good impression of late and his 5lb claim could prove very useful over this staying trip.
