Scott Dixon runs three here but Bengaline remains winless and Scrooby Doo is 10lb higher than when landing her maiden over C&D in October. Stablemate Man Of My Word looks to have the best chance of the trio though he has a bit to to find on January's running here with Point At Issue. The latter finished runner-up on that occasion and has leading claims with a similar effort, while Ghost Train looked much improved when second over 7f at Lingfield on his recent reappearance. However, REVE DU JOUR has finished runner-up in three subsequent starts over 5f since scoring over C&D last month and she gets the nod to return to winning ways back over the extra furlong.
