It was only a seller that Zenarinda won at Redcar last time and she'll find this tougher. Caterina ran a shocker last time having won at Folkestone before that while Shirataki has finished nearer last than first since scoring at Windsor in June. C&D winner Officer In Command has been well beaten of late but Mafi may do better back at this track. DANIEL THOMAS won five times early in the year and, having slipped down the weights since his return in August, he gets the token vote.
