Red Joker attempted to make all at Catterick last month and held off all but the winner including today's rival Silent Footsteps, who finished a well-beaten third. Connections of NO JET LAG will be hoping he employs the same tactics today as that should set up the race nicely for the Dewhurst and Racing Post Trophy entry. David Lanigan's colt beat a subsequent winner on the Polytrack last time and should be following up in this company.
