The Koukash-owned pair Mandy's Boy and Gabrial The Thug took part in the same race over a mile at Thirsk last time. The former came out best in finishing second but the latter has gone close over track and trip before. Tuscan Fun and Invincible Cara have both struggled off higher marks since winning earlier in the year while Mahican makes his handicap debut having beaten little when landing the odds at Hamilton. SINAADI had little chance in a Group 3 at Kempton last Saturday and ran accordingly but she'd won a handicap in good style at Windsor before that and is taken to defy a hike in the weights in this company.
