11th beaten 13l four weeks ago (over 1m1f here); plenty of wins on his CV but a while since he has been in the winners' enclosure; running without blinkers; hard to make a case for him despite this looking a little easier than last time

Verdict

JOKER MAN is worth siding with. He is arguably the most progressive runner in the field and given his current winning run, he has every chance of going in again. However, this is a difficult race to call; The Africa House may have his stamina stretched over this trip, and it could be worth forgiving William Iron Arm a poor run last time out.
