Both Orpsie Boy and Dark Crystal failed to cope with a rise in the weights last time having won their previous starts. OPT OUT makes more appeal on the back of a close-up third over today's trip at Musselburgh. Garry Whillans' 5lb claim further helps his cause and he's just preferred to the lightly-raced Blue Sonic. The latter shaped well enough when second on her handicap debut over track and trip and bold bid is expected here.
