April Fool won a claimer here a week ago and will find life more difficult carrying a penalty back in handicap company. Resuscitator has every chance arriving on the back of a recent win at Lingfield with Serious Drinking back in third while the penny dropped with Kassiodor last time when he finished runner-up to American Smooth in a maiden over C&D. Justcallmehandsome won here last month but has a bit to find with MOUNT HOLLOW on latest running and the latter gets the vote to make it third time lucky after going close here on his last two starts.
