Oblitereight has been running well in better company without success and the C&D winner is not easily overlooked in this. He makes more appeal than Catwalk, who may improve for her handicap debut but was still beaten five lengths when runner-up in heavy ground at Doncaster last time. SHY ROSA is also handicapping for the first time after going close over C&D in May behind subsequent dual winner Fast Or Free and she won't have to improve much on that to come out best here. Don Libre's earlier victory on the Polytrack at Lingfield suggests he could prove best of the remainder.
