Hot Secret won nicely under today's apprentice at Ffos Las last week but collateral form has her closely matched with Bheleyf, who never figured in better company at Ascot last time. Yarmouth winner Pixilated was also outclassed at Ascot in the Windsor Castle but is not out of this but Khefyn needs to improve if he's to figure. DANZ CHOICE scored on his handicap debut at Sandown a fortnight ago just ahead of subsequent dual winner Dream Maker with a couple of previous winners further behind. That looks the strongest form on offer and Richard Hannon's colt gets the nod.
