Trulee Scrumptious has shown her best form on this track and scored on soft ground last month but couldn't handle a 5lb rise at Brighton. Insaany scored on good to soft ground at Nottingham before a battling victory on fast going at Haydock. He ran a shocker on his hat-trick attempt on soft going at Ayr and is difficult to weigh up, though he still has the beating of Luck Of The Game on that Haydock run. ITSNOWCATO makes his handicap debut and, though beaten when odds-on at Wolverhampton in December, his pedigree suggests he'll do better in his second season so he's handed the vote.
