DEBT TO SOCIETY beat a couple of higher rated horses in a similar event at Uttoxeter last time. He should have little trouble dispatching today's rivals if running up to the same level. Ocean Power has a chance at the weights but arrives badly out of form and Verdasco hasn't done much better of late. Stonemadforspeed made a mockery of his name when planting himself at the start last time and refusing to race. The champion jockey takes over the reins for this.
