There's little between most of this modest bunch but LOUCAL got his head in front at Catterick on his reappearance and Noel Quinlan's charge gets the nod to follow-up. Bright Glow has claims on her return having gone close at Wolverhampton in November while both Carrera and Harrogate Fair have a shout on their best form at the same track. Yahilwa was beaten less than a length at Lingfield recently and that form looks stronger than Otto The First's placed effort over course and distance last month.
