Red Cape will be having his 141st start and going for victory number 19 and this is the sort of level he wins at. Beaten a nose by Goadby at Catterick last week, when Red Shadow and Spoken Word were not far behind, he's obviously a major contender on that form. Stroll On has had very little experience and makes her handicap debut but those who contemplate siding with Penina will need to ignore a poor run when favourite at Leicester. FOXTROT PEARL has started at huge odds on her last two runs but performed with credit. She's only had four runs but has shown enough ability to be handed the vote to reward each-way money in a tight handicap. Sunny Side Up looks best of the remainder.
