Bix ended last year in woeful form while Amelia Hull found Mick Dundee too good at this track last time. The latter had earlier been beaten by RUN IT TWICE over track and trip and David Evans' charge is fancied to go in again on the strength of that form. It's Only Business should make a race of it as he's won three of his last four starts including his latest outing at Lingfield where he overcame unfavourable terms to defeat Go Far in similar company.
