DOZY JOE only won a seller over course and distance last week but it was more competitive than this poor handicap and Joseph Tuite's charge can go in again despite carrying 6lb extra. Disco Dave remains 7lb higher than when scoring here earlier in the year while all 11 of General Tufto's wins on the all-weather have been at Southwell. The remainder have shown nothing to recommend them so far though Nellies Quest may improve making her handicap debut today.
