Mad Ginger Alice won her maiden over C&D earlier this month and could figure on her handicap debut, but another lightly-raced sort in TADABEER makes more appeal. His placed efforts on the turf looks to be stronger form and Ian Williams' charge won't have to improve much to get the better of today's more exposed rivals. The Which Doctor has been well beaten since scoring here last month and runner-up Peponi may reverse running, while Lockantanks is capable of taking this if back to his best. Good Authority can make the frame, but The Happy Hammer may need the outing on his first start since May.
