Jembatt has been running well without much luck but seems better over 7f and this could prove too short. Chillie Billie had been threatening to win a race for some time before finally getting off the mark at the 34th time of asking at Navan. He had a fitness advantage over a few of today's rivals and a 5lb rise makes this tougher. TIMES IN ANATEFKA is still a maiden but that can be put right today as she hasn't had much racing and has shown very good speed in her races on Polytrack. Future Earner is another maiden but she has much less scope and might just need the run. Ucanchoose likes this track and is just 4lb higher than his victory last summer while Beverley winner Local Flier could go well for new connections after a decent first effort at Dundalk last week.
