Verdict

Eskimo Jack gets the vote here with Cool Cossack and Music To My Ears heading a long list of dangers. The selection won well last time out when beating Mister Club Royal. That form has since been franked and despite his penalty under conditions that suit he is taken to defy the handicaper. Cool Cossack rates the main danger on his latest fifth behind Bubble Boy but he still prone to the odd error and at likely odds he looks worth taking on. Music To My Ears was a fair third behind Strong Resolve last time out but still remains weighted up to his best. Cresswell Willow won well last time when beating Eurocelt despite jumping left through out, he will lijke the track and should be watched in the market. Or Apples was a fair second behind Liberty Ben last time out and could improve for the step up in trip while Forest Miller is another last time out winner that could go well but he looks vulnerable under his penalty. This is a tough race as few can be ruled out but for the winner we return to Eskimo Jack to small stakes.
