Niceonemyson and Choc'A'Moca won their respective divisions of the same handicap over track and trip in July. The latter is 2lb lower today and finished ahead of One Kool Dude at Catterick on his return to action. Seamster has been running well on Polytrack and remains unexposed on Turf but the likes of Poyle Vinnie and Profile Star tend to save their best for the all-weather nowadays. CAPTAIN SCOOBY will need to step up on his recent form but is a course and distance winner and has plummeted down the weights since scoring at Redcar last season. He gets a tentative vote to bounce back in this.
