Muharrib likes to race prominently so won't be too inconvenienced by the drop back in trip and Indignant was set a tough task on her handicap debut at York in August. However, the latter's stablemate PIVOTAL MOVEMENT makes more appeal as she opened her account in fine style at Windsor last month and there should be more to come handicapping for the first time. Run Fat Lass Run made a winning debut at Ripon in April but hasn't raced since but Yorkshireman showed plenty of grit to regain the lead and beat Medici Dancer at Pontefract last time and can't be ignored. The latter has since boosted the form with a win at Redcar but Shrimpton's recent win came in a claimer and Blazing Knight landed a double in lesser company on the Polytrack.
