One Scoop Or Two loves it here with the mud flying but after winning four off the reel the handicapper appeared to have his measure last time and preference is for TARIQ TOO. David Simcock's colt won comfortably in what was only a moderate Redcar maiden last time but a mark of 75 for this handicap debut is far from frightening. Soft ground should certainly suit according to his pedigree and with the potential for improvement he gets the vote. Rio Cobolo will love the ground but although he has won over a mile he might just run out of gas over this far in these conditions and a bigger danger may be Frontline Girl from a mark 6lbs higher than her recent win and with going to suit.
