Verdict

An obvious chance for Fait Le Jojo to regain the winning thread at the expense of Majlis and Kaparolo. Rated much in excess of these on the official figures, Fait Le Jojo certainly wont be adverse to any overnight rain and should be match fit following a spin on the flat and a run in non-claiming grade. Majlis has to be of interest given that he still sports the colours of Terry Warner. He showed little on his return for a new trainer and has questions to ask now. Kaparolo has been kept busy in recent weeks. On balance, he is probably better over further and we will seek to oppose. Blue Streak is sure to be popular with the champion jockey booked but a strict interpretation of the formbook suggests that he would need Fait Le Jojo to run several stones below his best to be winning this. The remainder appear difficult to fancy on all racecourse evidence. Fait Le Jojo should be too good for these in our first race of the day.
