The Sportsman's Verdict
JOT'EM DOWN benefited from a wind operation and a set of cheekpieces when scoring on his chase debut at Plumpton last month. Despite being flattered by the 25-length winning margin at the finish, his closest pursuer falling at the second last, he left a lasting impression and a 6lb rise could prove to be very fair. Taaffes Castle improved for the step up in trip when second at Warwick over hurdles earlier in the month and warrants respect being a point-to-point winner, while course winner Iniesta completes the shortlist.
