Think Its All Over finished third over track and trip last time without threatening the winner. But No No Cardinal may well have finished in front of him if not for falling at the last. Marky Bob continues to struggle despite assistance from the handicapper and Stafford Charlie is hard to fancy. So the vote goes to CAPISCI on his earlier second at Worcester where he was beaten only a length off today's mark.
