Ouzinkie just managed to claim second place at Windsor last time at the expense of Regal Dan and it's anybody's guess which one of that pair will come out best here. DUST WHIRL made the frame in what looked a stronger contest at Newbury on his debut, however, and Richard Hannon's colt gets the nod on that basis. Bispham Green's dam won twice over today's trip and he makes most appeal of the newcomers though any strong support for Bairam or This Is Nice could prove significant.
