COFFEE has to be of interest here on his handicap debut as he has the potential to be a lot better than his current mark of 101. He gets a tentative vote though Butler is also lightly raced over timber. Jawhary and Stadium Of Light have already been beaten in sellers and the former finished behind Schumpters Lad at Huntingdon last month but David Pipe's pair Woodlark Island and Clever Dick could both figure if in the mood and Tresor De Bontee is probably better than he's shown so far. Topenhall and Gud Day look best of the rest but have looked a little one-paced so far.
