5/1

Has ran well in all four of his races to date, including when fourth in a Group 1 here behind U S Navy Flag when last seen. Every chance he will have improved and make a better three-year-old and ought to relish the drop in class here.

Placed in a couple of Group 2 last year and appreciated the drop in to Group 3 company when winning a six-runner race at Newbury last time. May want softer ground than this but yard in flying form and can't be ruled out.

Won debut at Nottingham and not disgraced when thrown in the deep end here on just his second start in a Group 2. Held his form well without winning for the rest of the campaign and should come on for recent run at Newcastle. Wears first-time visor.

C&D winner on final start of 2017 and just caught by a very exciting prospect at Lingfield on return to action last month. May struggle to dominate from the front against some of these though and 4lb rise for latest run may be enough to halt him.

Ran well in a trio of Listed races last year before landing a Group 3 in Turkey on final start of 2017. Needs to improve to defy this mark and showed very little on AW return last month but should at least strip fitter for that run.

Impressive winner on debut at Haydock and ran well in a Group 2 here in July but there's a chance he will need this run on first start since and has never run with any cut in the ground.

Form of his win here last June took a few knocks subsequently and while he wasn't disgraced at Group 2 level at the Curragh last time. May do better as a three-year-old but perhaps best watched this time.

Won two of his first three starts but struggled in Group company. Placed twice at Listed level but this possibly tougher and others make more appeal.

Followed up a win over this trip on the July course with a Group 3 win at Salisbury in September. Well beaten here when last seen and likely to struggle now taking on the opposite sex.

Unbeaten in three starts, winning a valuable contest at the Curragh when last seen. Did that in the manner of one that would appreciate a step up in trip and given he's effective on this ground, he's certainly of interest here.

Betting

Forecast

Nebo (9/2), Snazzy Jazzy (9/2), Hey Jonesy (5/1), Folk Tale (6/1), Great Prospector (8/1), Finniston Farm (9/1), Rufus King (10/1), Staxton (12/1), Another Batt (16/1), Anna Nerium (25/1)

Verdict

HEY JONESY ran a stormer in the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes here in September. That's the strongest form in this race by some distance and given that he may have improved in the interim, and he's proven around here, Kevin Ryan's charge is expected to be hard to beat. Snazzy Jazzy can run well in his bid to maintain his unbeaten record but Great Prospector could be the main danger if the first-time headgear works.
