Verdict

Rated 96 at the start of last season, HIT THE JACKPOT finally returned to form off a mark of 74 at Beverley last week. He scored by nine lengths, so a 6lb penalty is unlikely to prevent him going in again now seemingly back to his best. Ishikawa is also penalised for Wednesday's victory at Ascot and that looks stronger form than Eutropius recorded when scoring over track and trip last month. San Cassiano is weighted to go well for an in-form yard while Tenor should be winning again this season off his current mark. Wolverhampton winner Thatchmaster was practically pulled up at Pontefract last time and is best watched for now along with No Poppy.
