Tonvadosa won at Towcester in December but was a massive disappointment when beaten at odds-on at Bangor last month and may be worth opposing again here under a penalty, though she was Jason Maguire's only booked ride at the overnight stage. Bobble Boru was third, beaten 11 lengths, in that Towcester race and may not be able to turn the tables while Clear Mix and Miss Beattie need to improve on their debut efforts but there are possibilities about newcomers Graffiti Art and MULTI MAX. Tim Vaughan's four-year-old is Flat-bred and may have more pace than most of these.
