In depth

Verdict

Ifyouletmefinish could go close if transferring his form over hurdles to the larger obstacles. He makes much more appeal than both Prolinx and Brief Mark but this can go to FOURJACKS. The latter made a winning start to his chasing career when scoring at Wetherby last month and wasn't disgraced in a Grade 2 event at the same track behind Goulanes on his latest start. Tim Easterby's charge can return to winning ways back in this company.
