Whodathought was a winner when last seen and he has a chance under his revised mark if taking to the surface. No worries about the track for Duquesa after he only found one too good under a similar burden here when trying to follow up on a Nottingham success. Entrance can be considered on handicap debut but it's another debutante in these ranks that gets the vote in RIOT POLICE. John Gosden's runner ran well in a red-hot maiden on debut beating home a handicap winner who scored off a mark of 81. That would suggest his opening rating of 75 looks light so while he hasn't quite matched that form since he looks worth chancing.
