A poor contest in which Tinseltown could carry his big weight with distinction as he is at his best on this track and on the same mark as when last successful here. ELIZABETH COFFEE was in tremendous form before a very poor run from a 10lb higher mark at Nottingham. She could easily bounce back and though it's difficult to have much faith after that latest effort she can hopefully overcome whatever ailed her and take this. Woodstock has only won once on Turf but his overall form puts him right in the picture while Maillot Jaune couldn't go any lower in the ratings and finished second at Ayr in October off a 3lb higher mark.
