Redpender was well backed at Catterick last time but came up short when only managing fifth. He'll be looking to make amends in this, while Magic Present disappointed on his handicap bow at Newcastle and is also capable of better. Double Whammy can race off a lower mark back over timber but Solis remains 7lb higher than when scoring at Hexham in June. TOTAL ASSETS found a couple of much higher rated rivals too good in novice company last time. But she'd won a handicap at Newcastle in good style before that and Simon Waugh's mare gets the nod back handicapping once again.
