Course and distance winner DEMOLITION was always holding too many aces for Activate here last time in an above average seller and his previous form this season rates the best on offer, notably a strong third of 10 to the useful Clon Brulee at Ripon in May. Full Toss showed little on his reappearance and the decision to descend immediately to this level does not boost confidence in his chances. Course and distance scorer Valantino Oyster was a perfectly respectable third to Kuantan One at Ripon last time and also landed a Class 5 handicap at the same track in June. He represents solid each-way material. Eijazz has won twice here but eight of 13 career success have arrived at his beloved Catterick whilst Bollin Dolly and Betty Boo both merit a mention.
