In depth

Verdict

Jet Master went close here in November and should be thereabouts once again. But he keeps finding at least one too good and SUPRISE VENDOR makes more appeal. The latter has been raised only 3lb for defeating Croco Bay over track and trip last time and can go in again. Smadynium looks a threat on his latest second at Catterick where Dartford Warbler and Desgrey finished behind, although he's been raised another 5lb for that. Makbullet recorded both wins over hurdles at this track and can figure if taking to fences but Ballycool is 11lb higher than when scoring over track and trip in December and has been well beaten since.
