JIM TANGO has been raised 7lb for scoring at Kelso earlier this month and there should be little between him and third-placed Bob's Dream on the revised terms, though the winner ran on very strongly and can complete the double. Robin's Command and Overlaw were well beaten and appear held. Pamak D'airy is reasonably consistent at this level but hasn't won since 2011 and has been raised 3lb for finishing runner-up at Hexham where Crackerjack Lad was a very disappointing favourite. Turf Trivia appears to run his best races at Southwell and shot up the weights after winning there in June.
