If What And Maybe has a penalty for Tuesday's win on soft ground at Yarmouth and will need to improve on his previous form on Polytrack if he's to follow-up. PINOTAGE scored over a longer trip at Lingfield before finishing third over C&D a week ago and winning partner Justin Newman is back on board and taking 5lb off his back today. He gets the nod ahead of the less exposed pair Love Your Looks and Tawseef, who both showed improved form when placed on their latest starts. Eastward Ho has got his act together now and could figure on his handicap debut.
