AZRAG has won a couple of times over 1m4f here this month and was beaten only a nose over 2m at Kempton in between those victories. He's worth sticking with in his current form and makes more appeal than Porcini who has been in good heart over shorter trips at Kempton and is 5lb higher than when beating the re-opposing Cape Rainbow last time. Jeer had Iceman George back in fourth when scoring at this track last week but Jacob McCandles is preferred as his latest placed effort came over C&D.
