Course winners merit special attention around here and JAWHARY is taken to follow up a battling success last month. He was highly tried at times when under the care of Philip Hobbs before actually failing in selling company. However, he did the business first time up for Jamie Snowden and can defy a 5lb hike in the ratings. Oi Oi Savaloi is clearly not a leading light in the Longsdon yard but he did show a little more at Worcester last time and could be interesting here off his current mark on this much more testing track. True Blue is something of an in-and-out performer but at his best he would definitely warrant consideration for the dangerous Vaughan/Johnson combination.
