The winning streak of IT'S ONLY BUSINESS came to end at Stratford last week but he'd dotted up under McCoy over track and trip before that. He has little to fear from today's opposition and will likely start a short price. Red Eight, Hanga Roa and Style Setter finished a distance behind the selection at this track last time while Town Mouse and Jd Rockefeller were both pulled-up in the same race at Stratford on their hurdling debuts. Blue Clumber could prove best of those having their first start over timber
