Jay Bee Blue wasn't that far ahead of third-placed Sewn Up when scoring at Lingfield last month. That pair are closely matched in this and a chance is taken on PIAZZA SAN PIETRO. The latter began this season on a 12lb higher mark and looks set to take advantage dropping down in class for this. Sheikh The Reins has been running well over 7f at this track but Black Dave hasn't raced since scoring at Yarmouth in June. Batchworth Lady won here in September and is only 3lb higher and Dream Catcher has a shout on his earlier second over track and trip.
