It's normally handy to be drawn high here which gives RUTTERKIN a decent chance of adding to his meagre winning tally, especially as he's 11lb lower than when beginning last season's campaign and he reappeared with a good run at Wolverhampton. Quan hasn't shown much on Turf though isn't badly handicapped but Tooley Woods, who has dropped to a mark she should be capable of winning from, isn't well berthed. Man Of My Word ran poorly at Southwell last time and is still a maiden on Turf as is Peak Storm, who has now had 14 starts without winning.
