Brighton winner Know Your Name has the disadvantage of not having run since November but the remainder can all be given a chance. Joohaina and Cosquillas make their handicap debuts having both won over track and trip last time while Alumina landed a double over 6f with a win at Southwell last week. But she attempts this longer trip for the first time carrying 6lb extra. Captain Myles failed to cope in Class 2 company last month and, although better is expected today, a tentative vote goes to AMAHORO. She was having her first start since October when runner-up at Kempton recently and is taken to go one better with that pipe-opener under her belt.
