Captain Scooby 'should be bang there' RACE OF THE DAY.
Mark Brisbourne, trainer of Rowan Spirit "Our division of the race looks a lot tougher than the other one. He's gone up 3lb for being second there last time and never runs a bad race. We have a solid chance of making the frame."
John Spearing, trainer of Equuleus Pictor "He disappointed over course and distance last time and I don't know why. He has winning form on the surface but this race does have a competitive look to it."
John Balding, trainer of Sleepy Blue Ocean "It looks as though we are in the stiffer division of the race but he knows his way round Southwell and has a squeak from a good draw."
Kevin Ryan, trainer of Oldjoesaid "He's in good form but it depends which Oldjoesaid turns up."
Alan McCabe, trainer of Il Battista "He's something of a course specialist and his two-year-old form at the track was excellent. It's a better race than he won last time but he has a good chance of following up."
Ian Williams, trainer of Tourist "It's good prize-money but it's a competitive race. It will be interesting to see how he gets on as we haven't run him on the surface before."
