Verdict

Major Jumbo was beaten less than a length in last month’s Wokingham here and has every chance on that form while Paul Midgley runs the progressive Tanasoq, who landed a four-timer at Chester recently. Stablemate Line Of Reason is penalised for winning at Ayr during the week while Copper Knight beat Evergate, Atletico and Barrington when successful at Newcastle last time and an apprentice’s allowance reduces a 6lb rise. Haddaf, Spring Loaded and Encore d'Or are all capable at this level if at their best but a chance is taken POLYBIUS can end a log losing run. He joined David O’Meara at the start of 2017 and posted his best effort in last year’s renewal when runner-up off a 6lb higher mark. Sharper for a recent return from a lay-off, he should be in the mix once again.
