J: Sean Quinlan

T: Lizzie Quinlan

Won three times last year and back on the scoresheet over C&D (soft) last Saturday, following wind surgery; had just a short head to spare in that three-runner race and this is much more competitive, but it was certainly a positive performance and he's gone back up just 1lb; not ruled out.

Returned from seven-month absence with two underwhelming Flat runs this spring and was safely held when back over fences at Uttoxeter ten days ago, but battled on well to win over C&D last summer and is effectively 5lb lower today.
