Flying Applause bids for hat-trick after his recent victory over C&D in soft ground. However, EDMAAJ will be fancied to take revenge on better terms today as he was beaten only a neck by the latter last week and has plenty of scope for improvement. Fazza ploughed the mud for third place at Haydock in October and will have come on for his recent reappearance while the enigmatic Georgebernardshaw has slipped down the weights and won twice in heavy going way back in 2008. The once prolific Final Drive has done all his winning on the all-weather, but has tumbled so far down the handicap lately, it only looks a matter of time before he's winning again.
