Blue Jack comes out bets at the weights but arrives out of sorts and has no winning form in soft ground. Ertikaan is another dropped in class but he too may struggle in the prevailing ground conditions while Fathsta seems better over 7f nowadays. Admirable veteran EFISTORM was winning for the fifth time this season when scoring in testing going at Goodwood last month and he gets the nod back in plating company with Victorian Bounty seemingly best of the remainder.
