R Woody landed a similar event over track and trip back in September and Quality Art scored over the minimum trip at Southwell last month. Dark Lane won over 6f here in November, but all of the above have something to find on today's terms with the two at the top of the weights. Profile Star looks weighted up to the hilt in handicaps and drops in class for this and HAMOODY makes more appeal. He beat Pabusar, rated 87, at Lingfield last month and should take care of today's opposition with a similar effort.
