STEELCUT bids for his hat-trick after a couple of wins in claimers, including a victory over 6f here last time. This handicap looks no tougher and, as he's equally at home over today's minimum trip, David Evans' charge gets the nod to go in again. Howyadoingnotsobad made a winning reappearance over C&D a fortnight ago and should go well again despite a 7lb rise, while Vhujon went close over track and trip last time and he pops up in his turn. But Sherjawy has a bit to find with both the aforementioned pair and Bookiesindex Boy seems best at Southwell nowadays.
