In depth

Verdict

LITTLE JIMMY stayed on well to land a similar contest over track and trip earlier this month. A 5lb higher mark may not be enough to prevent a follow-up as he clearly handles the mud. Achieved and Tchang Goon both carry more than their allotted weight while Lady Willa has a bit to prove at present but Goring Two is another mud-lover who can't be ignored, though is probably high enough in the ratings at present. Rosoff and Sawago are similarly handicapped.
