Four of Topaling's five runs have been on the Polytrack at Lingfield where she scrambled home in a handicap last week earning a penalty in the process. Big Kenny has won on Polytrack and Fibresand but never on Turf. He's basically plating class while Avocadeau's lone success came in a poor contest at Bath and he's struggled off his revised rating. Authorized Too makes his handicap debut after moderate form in maidens so this looks another for NEEDLESS SHOUTING. Mick Channon's charge has completed a double over 1m6f but should have enough pace for this shorter trip and any further rain would aid his cause.
