Thatcherite went close over 5f here last time but has yet to win over today's trip. Salvatore Fury won a division of this last year off a 7lb lower mark while Kirtling Belle ended last season with a win at Newcastle but hasn't raced since August. MISSION IMPOSSIBLE is back on a winning mark and finished well ahead of Meandmyshadow when runner-up at Catterick recently. It could be the turn of Tracy Waggott's charge today and he gets the nod.
