Stable companion Jacob Black, the winner of four races already this term, is among the field along with Jim Goldie’s Jessie Allan, a three-time winner so far in 2018 and a mare making the 50th appearance of her career.
Goldie said: “It was a memorable day at Redcar back in May when she won for the first time in her career. It was a long time coming but she’s since shown it was no fluke with two more wins at Ayr.
