Just The Tonic was raised 5lb for winning at Catterick but One Way Or Another still looks fairly treated, despite recording victories here and at Lingfield recently, and should make a bold bid to complete his hat-trick stepping up a couple of grades. Fantasy Gladiator and Emiratesdotcom are others with realistic claims but this looks a good opportunity for JUBILEE BRIG. He ran well on a couple of occasions in September off similar marks and may have been kept back with a winter campaign in mind. Celtic Sixpence has run well here in the past and also warrants a second look but Red Art was beaten in a seller at Leicester last month.
