Mission Impossible recorded one of his rare wins at Newcastle last week and looks vulnerable under a penalty. Neither Bond Club nor Rich Again could cope with a rise in the weights last time having won their penultimate starts while Amis Reunis finished only just ahead of Slim Chance when second over track and trip last week. Haydock winner Woodland Girl could figure with a belated reappearance under her belt but a chance is taken on SEAL ROCK. He won four times in this country before racing in Ireland and makes his debut for John Quinn off a much lower mark now back on these shores.
