KELPIE BLITZ is looking to end a long losing run and won't get many better opportunities. He was runner-up at Ffos Las last month and that's the best piece of recent form on offer. Cabuchon won here last year but hasn't been at his best of late while Arlecchino has slipped down the handicap but was still beaten a long way when third at Doncaster. Glens Wobbly scored over track and trip last month but hasn't figured in a couple of subsequent starts and the remaining pair are even harder to fancy.
