    Verdict

    Fast ground is not ideal for the returning Lupo D'oro while Cruise Tothelimit would also prefer some cut. But the going should be no problem for BLUE JACK, who won at Lingfield in February and is a dual course and distance winner. He's just preferred to Temple Road, who has also been in winning form on the Polytrack this year. Both Rebecca Romero and Macdillon look high enough in the weights on their seasonal debuts and Pontefract winner Kellys Eye could prove a bigger threat with a recent outing under his belt. Alpha Delta Whisky looks best of the rest on the back of a couple of wins at Kempton.
