Jack Regan carries 6lb extra after winning at Nottingham last week and Knight Errant showed further progress when scoring at Windsor recently and is upped 5lb. A winner at Newmarket in May, He's Amazing drops back down in class but three of these make their handicap debuts. Monoxide has placed over track and trip in novice company and Quargent scored over 7f at Kempton before disappointing over today’s trip. But MISTER AMBASSADOR (NAP) opened his account when winning over today’s trip at Newcastle and he gets the nod to show further improvement now handicapping with Frankie on board for the first time.
