JARGON looks to have this at his mercy. He won a maiden at Brighton despite having his initial run blocked and scored a shade cosily once switched. Value for more than the official winning margin of a length, he's preferred to Thecornishassassin. The latter won over track and trip last time and should have the beating of Air Of York and Golden Wedding. Cosmic Ray has the speediest pedigree of the newcomers ahead of Gild Master.
