Verdict

Goldan Jess makes a swift reappearance after winning over a slightly shorter trip at Market Rasen on Saturday in a race in which Galley Slave finished well beaten. Though carrying a penalty, he was out of the handicap at the Lincolnshire track so is effectively only 3lb higher. Young Mags is usually thereabouts and Scriptwriter bounced back to form over C&D last month and can't be ignored. A market move for French Seventyfive would be significant but Muwalla didn't appear to stay when tried over this trip at Musselburgh last year and finished behind Samtheman at Market Rasen in August. Both of SPIRIT IS NEEDED's wins last year came in this grade and he hinted at a revival at Perth last time. Dropped a further 3lb since, he gets a tentative vote here.
