IFYOUTHINKSO was only beaten a length over track and trip off today's mark in November. Tom Bellamy takes off 7lb and the top weight may prove best of a moderate bunch ahead of Safferano, who hasn't raced since landing a novices' handicap at Fakenham in the autumn. The mare Tara Tavey has a chance on her best form, as does Bally Braes, but Noble Perk was still beaten 15 lengths when second on his return from a lay-off at Exeter.
