Crunched comes out best at the weights but is badly out of sorts and may prefer a shorter trip. ELIZABETH COFFEE is preferred as she wasn't beaten that far when fifth at Chester last time and can prove successful racing in this lesser company for the first time. Jack Dawkins has been in good form on the Fibresand at Southwell this year but was well beaten at Catterick in between all-weather starts while Sinatramania finished second to Yorksters Prince in a couple of sellers last term, though the latter arrives in woeful form.
