Mark Johnston runs both Mu'Ajiza, who ran quite well in a better race than this here last time, and Tussie Mussie, who has lost her form after a decent start to the campaign. Lyric Piece has an all-weather pedigree and has raced exclusively on an artificial surface to date so how she will handle today's conditions is an unknown factor. Naaz will have no problems with the surface having gained his only success on good to soft ground at Redcar. He went up 8lb for that which looked a bit harsh and he's struggled a bit subsequently. CORREGGIO had only two opponents at Pontefract but was the outsider of the trio despite a strong performance on his previous start. He belied his odds with a very impressive victory and a 7lb rise doesn't look enough to prevent a follow-up. Neither Gioia Di Vita nor Lexington Blue can be discounted in what looks a tight handicap.
