Forecast

Impatient Partner (4/1), R'evelyn Pleasure (4/1), Brawler (9/2), Eleazar Des Neiges (5/1), Abraham (11/2), Rebel Early (9/1), Macho Mover (10/1), Jukebox Jive (14/1), Crazyheart (16/1), Russian Bill (20/1), Ice Cool (20/1)

Verdict
JUKEBOX JIVE looks certain to appreciate the likely testing conditions and this step back up in trip and should be capable of giving a good account of himself. His best recent effort came around this trip on his penultimate start and should be capable of replicating that. The mare Rebel Early has run well at this track and although she needs to put a first flight blunder last time out behind her, should be capable of running a big race. Crazyheart is still looking for his first win over hurdles but looks reasonably weighted on what he has achieved and certainly has decent place claims at worst.
  1. Jukebox Jive
