Mick Quinn won this race last year and should REFUSE COLLETTE turn up in the same mood as she did when successful nine days ago, it would take a very brave man to oppose her. Almax could be anything and along with fellow handicap debutants, Ecliptic Sunrise and Notgordonitsrodger, the market could send out the most pertinent message. Gung Ho Jack and Irish Boy have dropped back down the weights, with the former attracting plenty of market interest ahead of a recent visit to Lingfield's Polytrack. High Tone shaped as if she would be capable of picking up a small race when placing on her handicap debut at Brighton though she has been well held on two subsequent starts. Danzoe appears incredibly well treated on the pick of his Turf form but his recent efforts leave him with something to prove.
