Verdict

The recent winners look the ones to foucs on. Jungle Juice, winner on three of his last four, is now 16lb higher than when starting his winning spree but 7f on quick ground are his optimum conditions and he's likely to make a good first of sealing a hat-trick. Kachumba scored with plenty in hand at Brighton but seems better suited by turning tracks and therefore the vote falls upon CRYSTAL CASQUE (NAP). A versatile type regarding ground and trip, the Millman filly showed a good attitude to oblige on the Kempton all-weather latest, prior to which she had produced a couple of excellent Salisbury efforts. She looks better treated than her main rivals and can go in again.
