Zaplamation hasn't won on the Flat since April 2010 but landed a selling hurdle at Cartmel last month after going reasonably well on the level. Valantino Oyster's last three victories have come in sellers but OPERATEUR has dropped to a very lowly mark and, as he hasn't had much racing, can add to the victory gained at Catterick in July. Mr Snoozy ran poorly over 1m6f here a month ago but would have a chance on his earlier form while Italian Lady is interesting on her handicap debut and stepping up from a mile. First-time blinkers could galvanise Authentication while Brasingaman Espee appeared to find massive improvement at Catterick.
