Verdict

Ckalco Des Loges has questions to answer now having been pulled up twice recently. Jayo Time has more letters than numbers in recent form figures while Lillington has failed to fire so far this season. Auenwirbel has become expensive to follow but Triple Chief was running well prior to his latest effort at Leicester. BAJARDO is no world-beater but won around here last year and has also recorded a victory at Fakenham this season. He may be a couple of pounds too high but is more likely to run his race than some of these. Canicallyouback continues to slip down the weights but it’s a while since he threatened to win a race.
