In the Betway Stayers Handicap (2.55) at Lingfield on Wednesday, Volpone Jelois was beaten just threequarters of a length and a short head over 1 mile 4 furlongs at the Surrey track last week and, stepping back up in distance, looks to have bright prospects of winning his first race on the Flat for Paul Nicholls. The Vol De Nuit gelding won over 1 mile 7 furlongs at Deauville on his final start for Simone Brogi and has run creditably in defeat, over shorter, on all three starts on the Flat since. He races off the same handicap mark as last week so, with Noble Behest making his first start for Robert Stephens after the best part of three months off, he looks the one to be on.
