Aviso needs to be watched in the betting to get a clear picture of his chance as he is now just 1lb above his last winning mark and has Richard Hughes in the saddle. One Scoop Or Two has recently come out of a purple patch but although he has won here in the past still looks a little high in the weights. Chief Red Cloud has claims on his win two starts back but will need to do better than on his last run and Just Jimmy is at least consistent and should give his running again. However, FINAL DRIVE looks the choice after he only found a couple of subsequent winners too good last time out so looks value to go a couple better.
