STAFFHOSS won his maiden over track and trip and found only one too good on his handicap debut at Wolverhampton. This looks less competitive and he gets the vote back at this course. Club House won a claimer last month but has failed to figure in handicap company either side of that victory while Run It Twice won a nursery over a longer trip but has been beaten off a higher mark in three subsequent starts. Ishigunnaeatit has gone close over 6f recently but was well beaten on her only previous start over today's trip.
