A wide open finale, and from a moderate bunch we'll support the one with a little decent recent form, and that's DANCING JEST, who we prefer to Tignello and Full Victory. Rae Guest's mare is a game sort, and won well last time at Leicester over a mile and a quarter after dictating the whole race, to end a run of second places. The step down in trip shouldn't be a problem, and she sets a moderate standard in this company. Tignello may try and win it from the front; third in his last three outings, he's got a good attitude and sooner rather than later should be winning at this sort of level. Full Victory, along with Shanzu, is a course and distance winner; both have seen better days, but the last time Shanzu ran at this level he was a winner. Full Victory's career wins have all come in May and June, and when winning at bath three runs back, Tignello was third. It's a trappy contest, but we'll side with Dancing Jest.
