Catalyze is penalised for last weekend's win at Wolverhampton but still makes more appeal than another recent winner in Torres Del Paine, who picked up a Class 7 event here last time. Littlecote Lady went close here on her penultimate start and Vitznau will be taking advantage of his slide down the weights before long. The last comment also applies to LITTLE CHOOSEY, rated 9lb higher when winning a maiden at Wolverhampton in September and dropping down a grade today. He gets the nod with Irish raider Mr Bounty looking a threat off his current mark.
