RESOLUTE failed to land the odds at Wolverhampton last time but his earlier victory at this track gives him the edge over today's rivals. He sluiced up in a novice event over 7f here in November. Our Gabrial has the opposite form having finished only third here before scoring on the Polytrack 10 days ago. Slinky McVelvet has landed a double over track and trip with Eddiemaurice tailed off last time, but has more to find if she's to match the selection, while Swivel makes his debut on the Fibresand after opening his account at Lingfield earlier in the month.
