Perfect Pasture has been well placed to complete a hat-trick and there's no reason why he shouldn't beat Willbeme, who was half-a-length behind him at Nottingham on Wednesday, again on today's terms. However, an inside berth wouldn't have been on Mick Easterby's wish-list and it would be no surprise to see the positions reversed. Ingenti is also drawn a bit too low in a competitive sprint and he looks a few pounds high at present so the vote goes to CAPTAIN SCOOBY, whose last victory was over this track and trip in April from a 2lb higher mark - his rider can claim her 7lb allowance.
