Jester Jet completed a hat-trick on good ground in the spring and not surprisingly shot up the weights. She ran well enough on her final start at Aintree in June but is up another 2lb and wouldn't want more rain. RIVER ARROW ()NAP) won a novices' event at Southwell then ran a cracking race in a Grade 2 mares' event at Newbury. She looks a progressive type and can make a successful reappearance. Whatsthatallabout is an obvious threat having completed a hat-trick with a victory in a handicap followed by two novices' events, the latest in very impressive fashion. Graceful Legend also completed a treble last season but shot up the weights and has been unable to handle the step-up in grade this term. On Demand won a Wincanton handicap at this level and didn't run badly when stepped up a grade on the same track.
