JAZZ LEGEND won over track and trip in November and was beaten less than a length off today’s higher mark back here last time. He makes most appeal having finished in front of Tellovoi at the track earlier, though the latter has since placed elsewhere on several occasions and should go well again. Coiste Bodhar pops up at this level when the mood takes him but Pearl Noir has won just the once in 25 outings on Fibresand and Thedevilinneville has shown little so far as he goes handicapping for the first time.
