Jalingo might need this but can’t get much lower in the weights. Lucky's Dream rattled up a hat-trick on the all-weather at the start of the year but hasn’t run over hurdles for a long time. Getawaytonewbay has been chasing but Jobesgreen Lad may have more to offer and a similar comment applies to Lady Chuffnell.
