It's difficult to have much faith in Palace Jester after another failure at Uttoxeter. Lukeys Luck appears to be treading water off his current mark while Special Account was a disappointing favourite here last month and Full Of Joy finished tailed off at Cartmel on his latest start. ADRENALIN FLIGHT may have found the ground a little too fast for him at Newton Abbot last time as he'd won a shade cosily here earlier. Seamus Mullins' charge is taken to bounce back as Terfel's Toscar has more on his plate than at Perth. Recent course and distance second Brough Academy looks best of the rest ahead of Western King.
