Krupskaya won her maiden over 7f here in October when beating Darkside but didn't take to the Fibresand at Southwell on her return when a well beaten third. PANAMA CAT has yet to win but went close over a mile at Yarmouth last season and has a couple of outings on Polytrack under her belt. She gets the tentative vote in a poor handicap. Bell 'Arte has been dropped a generous 6lb after a fourth at Leicester on her handicap debut in October and she could figure while Mash Potato is another capable of getting involved on his reappearance.
