Mister Fizz won well enough at Haydock last week and should figure again despite a 6lb rise. But a couple of these have more scope including Awattan, who makes her handicap debut having finished runner-up here back in March. EVERLASTING LIGHT didn't fare too badly on her introduction to handicapping at Kempton when finishing fifth, just behind a subsequent winner. She's expected to improve for the longer trip and is preferred to both Pencombe and Mistral Wind.
