Stuart Crawford will be hoping to take the first division with Mister Nibbles and this with IZZINI, who has a double penalty to carry after two victories at Sedgefield. It's difficult to imagine her not being there at the finish and, on the whole, the newcomers including Donald McCain's Perfect Poison are bred for jumping and may not have the pace to trouble her. Attonburn could prove the best of them but Bellgrove was beaten a long way at Ayr and will need massive improvement.
