Verdict

JAMEEL has been well supported in both starts over timber but found one too good on both occasions. He finished closer at Fakenham last time and gets another chance here ahead of Saroque. The latter came out second best in battle to the line with Aye Well at Catterick last time and should figure once again while Chepstow winner Bravo Bravo is another to consider if taking part but has a first preference at Ffos Las today. Swaledale Lad's earlier placed efforts give him a chance and Prince Blackthorn showed a bit more at Sedgefield on his latest start.
