Ballyvoque's second to Rendl Beach at Musselburgh in December looks stronger form than Gonow's recent victory at Sedgefield and the latter now carries a penalty. But it would be no surprise to see BRASSICK make a winning debut and he hails from a yard in form and is a half-brother to the useful hurdler and chaser Skint. Fellow newcomer Saints And Sinners may need the experience while Pudsey House returns after more than a year on the sidelines.
