I LOVE the Portland, it's one of my favourite handicaps of the year.
There ought to be a searing pace on here with several front-runners in attendance.
That could set things up nicely for MARNIE JAMES (1.50 Doncaster).
Jedd O'Keeffe's speedster rattled home to finish second to one of the horses of the season in Dakota Gold at York last month.
He then had to settle for a place behind that rival again on worse terms in a Listed contest, but the return to handicap company will be much more his cup of tea.
He is more than capable of landing a big pot off this sort of mark, and with an anticipated pace meltdown this could just fall into his lap.
