Lizzie Tudor has yet to win outside of maiden company but has tumbled down the weights and could bounce back soon. The last comment also applies to Set The Trend rated 19lb higher at the start of the season. Potentate usually runs his race and that should be good enough to see him thereabouts but this looks between the less exposed types. It's too soon to write off Doncaster winner Jailawi despite his defeat at Redcar last month though CERTIFICATE is preferred today. The latter won his maiden over track and trip in June and further progress is expected here.
