Dr Phibes was only beaten a head in a maiden over C&D last month but never figured on his handicap bow while Brazilian Clown has also gone close over today's trip but on the Fibresand at Southwell. Greeleys Love, Makinson Lane and Attansky are all worth noting with improvement likely but a tentative vote goes to LOKI'S STRIKE. He was only beaten a length at Redcar a week ago on his handicap debut with Roland back in fourth and can go one better racing off the same mark today.
