Race Verdict

HITS ONLY JUDE was not totally disgraced at Pontefract last time and he acts well on this surface so it might be worth taking a chance on him off 1lb lower than his last winning mark. Jupiter Fidius ran well enough on his seasonal debut at Newcastle last week and he looks the sort to take to this surface so he is worthy of a place on the shortlist, with Somerset Island and Rub Of The Relic also considered.

Selection: Hits Only Jude        Danger: Jupiter Fidius        Alternative: Somerset Island
