Rated 78, the penalised Jump The Gun sets a decent standard but LEOCH looks up to taking this. The latter found only the odds-on Glasvegas, rated 98, too good in soft going at Hamilton on his debut and Kevin Ryan’s charge gets the vote on that form. Felicia Blue also made a promising start when runner-up at Ripon though stablemate and newcomer Cuban Affair is worth a second glance while Rebel Soldier Boy is preferred to Seas Of Elzaam having gone close over 5f in both outings to date. Stittenham Wood may prove best of the rest.
