HAZEL BROOK, who is Flat-bred, made a very promising start when beaten just over two lengths by Monita Bonita at Southwell. She's been found a good opportunity to go one better here though Chalk It Down is interesting being by Milan and from a stable adept at getting their charges fit at home. Ruperra Tom wasn't entirely disgraced at Uttoxeter last month and What A Joke has won a point-to-point but the remainder make little appeal.
