Bruce Lynn has ridden Golden Jeffrey twice before but he didn’t look an ideal ride for an inexperience pilot when failing to justify market support at Perth last week. REGULATION looks a worthy market rival having only been headed close home at Stratford 10 days ago when Wells De Lune finished fourth having made much of the running. Apterix has had a break and may benefit from a switch back to fences while the going may be too quick for Ormskirk. Captain Brown may be the best of his stable’s three runners with Alex Ferguson taking the reins, though he needs to stage a revival.
