GAME ALL had Steelcut way behind when scoring at Kempton and can defy a 3lb rise in the weights. She makes more appeal than Give Us A Belle, who is penalised for landing an amateurs' race at Windsor last week. Whipphound looks stuck off his current mark but should go well again without being quite good enough and Greek Spirit may well get involved at this level as she makes her handicap debut.
