Allegria was only beaten a length on her handicap debut over track and trip. She'd earlier beaten subsequent maiden winner MIZZOU at Haydock but the latter re-opposes on better terms and has obviously improved since. He gets the vote ahead of the other handicap debutants Wakea and Dino Mite. Innocent Touch won over course and distance in June and went close again at Chester last time. He's preferred to Latin Charm and Dalaki of the remainder.
