Verdict

AFRICAN JAZZ looked a stayer of serious potential in his first try at 2m last time where he fairly hosed up. This is a tougher contest but a 7lb rise is not unfair and looks unlikely to stop him here. Arab Moon is the obvious danger having won well at Kempton latest and he can take advantage of a lower turf mark here which is generous given his form on turf is pretty good overall. What A Welcome is an unknown over 2m but having won seven of his nine starts for this yard he can't be dismissed.
  1. African Jazz
  2. Arab Moon
  3. What A Welcome
