Dutch Decoy is gradually getting his act together and has to be of interest running in his first handicap. What A Business came good in a nursery at Nottingham but is exposed and may struggle off a 6lb higher mark. Singe Anglais is on a hat-trick and will handle conditions better than most but Danny Ocean, Oso Rapido and Kilham all need to bounce back from below-par efforts last time. HAVANA DAWN gets a rain-softened surface for the first time since opening her account at Thirsk in June. She’s not had much luck in her two runs in handicaps and is probably on a fair mark.
