Most of these are regulars at this level and some even manage the occasionally win. DEAL ME IN is the exception as he's having only his fourth start and won't need to improve much to open his account. Piccolo Mondo and Catchanova have both slid down the weights but the latter is preferred today given he's won three times over track and trip, while Karate is back on a winning mark if in the mood though he finished a long way behind fourth-placed Wyndham Wave here last week. Mcconnell and Just Five usually save their best for Southwell.
