ONE SCOOP OR TWO has been back on a winning mark for some time but hasn't taken advantage in handicaps. He looks to have an easier task dropped in class today with Jack Duern's claim further helping his cause. Attain won over track and trip last month and his latest placed effort gives him the beating of India's Song on collateral form. Dividend Dan is another recent course winner though he's been well beaten since and Arabian Flight looks a bigger threat back on the Polytrack having won a couple of selling races at Southwell earlier in the year.
