Izzy Boy ended last year with a double that included a victory at this venue. Masai Moon could pop-up at any time having tumbled down the handicap and Solarmaite showed a bit more when runner-up over 7f here on her latest start. Masked Dance is another capable of getting involved when the mood takes him but CARAMELITA is preferred. John Jenkins' mare is only 1lb higher than when scoring over course and distance in November and after a more recent third here, she looks set for a return to winning ways.
