CAPTAIN WHOOSH looks capable of winning off his current handicap mark on the evidence of his second at Nottingham last month. That looks stronger form than Flashy Queen's third at Brighton and he gets the nod. Broadway Ranger finished a length ahead of Groundworker when making the frame at Bath last time while By Rights has a shout on her second over track and trip in October. Fuel Injection failed to reproduce his earlier form at Southwell when last of six at Ripon but Mr Dandy Man has place claims on his reappearance.
