AMAZING WIN is proving a real money-spinner for the Mick Channon yard this year and has already scored four times. She's as tough as old boots and thrives on racing and, with Charles Bishop back on board to claim 5lb, can defy her new mark and reverse earlier C&D running with Whitecrest on today's quicker surface. Big Wave won at Nottingham on his first start for Alison Hutchinson and also has to go on the short-list while veteran Cape Royal showed plenty of dash here last month and is still capable of a bold showing. Course specialist Stonecrabstomorrow has been a bit disappointing so far this term however.
