"He is worth another chance in a race of this nature..."

Timeform on Samurai Jack

#3 Pacific War - Turf Paradise R5 (21:44 GMT)

Pacific War has had excuses the last twice, bumped at the start in July and slowly away on his latest start in August. He has been freshened up since, and has the form to figure here if breaking on terms. Wilt and Minimum Noise look best of the remainder.

#5 Parched - Turf Paradise R6 (22:14 GMT)

Parched was a good winner over this C&D last month and is best not judged too harshly on his latest run back here when unsuited by the drop back to six and a half furlongs. The return to the one-mile trip here looks a good move and he can resume winning ways, likely at the main expense of Playoff Bound.

#8 Samurai Jack - Turf Paradise R7 (22:44 GMT)

Samurai Jack shaped much better than the bare result over this C&D last time, looking a threat on the second turn, but just emptying in the straight. He is worth another chance in a race of this nature. Sink The Bismarck and Domenico also make some appeal.
