Beaten a head by Mirsaale from a 3lb lower mark over 2m at Ripon in April (good to soft), but disappointing more latterly and without a win since July 2015 (Listed).

Not raced on the Flat since May 2016, but did show a solid level of 2m form back then; notably when beaten a neck by Noble Gift at Ripon. Off for almost 12 months since his last hurdles start (125-rated).

Progressed towards the back-end of the previous campaign winning at Kempton in September 2017 (1m3f) and returned with a solid effort at Ascot last month (1m4f good to firm) beaten in excess of 2L by Count Calabash.

16/1

Past C&D winner who managed two wins during the course of 2017, the latest over 1m2f on heavy ground at Pontefract in September; something to find with a couple of these runners on his latest effort at Hamilton.

8/13

On a hat-trick following 1m4f wins at Ascot (soft) and York (good to firm), but his prominent racing tactics should be an ideal match to Musselburgh; up 8lb for that latest win, but very much progressive.

Broke his turf duck over C&D in early May beating Akamanto by a neck, and won again by the same margin at Hamilton latest (1m3f good to firm); just 2lb higher so considered for a place in a stronger race.

Betting

Forecast

Reverend Jacobs (8/13), Western Duke (4/1), Theglasgowwarrior (7/1), Dance King (16/1), Eye of The Storm (16/1), Lycidas (40/1)

Verdict

REVEREND JACOBS is unlikely to offer much in the way of value in the market, but he rates as an obvious selection despite an 8lb rise for a narrow success at York on his seasonal return. This track will play to his strengths as a front-runner, so he's chosen in preference to Western Duke.
