As with any newcomers' event, the betting should be highly informative. In terms of credentials, the most interesting runner is ALLONOK who has four bumper winners in his family and whose trainer has a good strike-rate at this venue. It's also worth keeping a close eye on the Nigel Twiston-Davies duo, Baby Ted and Midnight Trouble.[Steve Boow]
