MONSTER MUNCHIE has raced twice over C&D and won both times. She looked to have a bit up her sleeve when scoring here three weeks ago and Bill Knight's filly can follow up. Key Breeze went close over a shorter trip at this track recently and will appreciate the extra furlong, but the handicap debutant Cookieshake was a disappointing favourite over 7f last time though should do better over today's distance. Mill Mick makes most appeal of the remainder.
