Ed McMahon's Jimmy The Poacher was good value for his win at Leicester earlier this month but struggled off his new mark at Pontefract at the beginning of the month and may do so here in a race taken to GRAND ZAFEEN. Mick Channon's filly has not been out of the first three home in her last three outings, winning twice, and she can defy the 2lb rise for her latest effort when chasing home Panpiper at Bath. David Barron's Melody In The Mist is seemingly better over the minimum trip, while Tim Easterby's Offspring struggled off his new mark at Haydock earlier this month and is likely to do so again. Kevin Ryan's Pelmanism will find this tougher than the maiden that he won at Bath last time and of more interest may be Richard Fahey's Tasmeem, who has dropped to a fair mark but needs to improve on recent form to trouble the judge.
