BIG SYLV won over C&D in this lowly grade a week ago and given she scored by over three lengths, she's fancied to shrug off a penalty and follow-up. Avon Supreme will do well to reverse last week's running but Michael's Nook showed a bit more when fourth last time having slipped down the weights. Brown Pete, Royal Intruder, Justcallmehandsome and C&D winner Just Five are others tumbling down the handicap although the latter is only one to show any recent improvement for it having posted a slightly better effort at this track last time.
