Luca Cumani looks to have found a good opportunity for OUT DO in this. The latter's latest close-up sixth in a handicap at Salisbury is easily the best form on offer and he's taken to open his account. Generalyse also returns to maiden company after a third at Newbury and he'll be thereabouts while Mister Mackenzie can be given a chance if forgiven a below par effort at Wolverhampton last time. Homeboy has gone backwards since placed at this track in July but Elusive Pursuit and En Ete have scope for improvement.
