CUORE finished last of three in a maiden here last Tuesday. She wasn't beaten that far by a winner rated 70, so won't have to find much improvement to come out best in this company. Siouxies Dream finished runner-up at Kempton last time and makes more appeal than December's Southwell winner Cat Queen, while Outlaw Torn has struggled since scoring at Kempton back in September. Nic Nok should improve on his comeback fourth at Lingfield last month, but Redclue failed to step up on his debut effort when fifth at this track last time.
