Fair Loch has the best form of those with experience but that's not saying much. Malcolm Jefferson's bumper horses usually know their job so the Presenting gelding Pair Of Jacks has to be worth a second look. Rye Tangle could also go well but David O'Meara has booked Denis O'Regan to ride his Kayf Tara newcomer CELTIC AGENT and he may well prove good enough to make a winning debut.
