Absa Lutte has only been raised 2lb for her recent win at Lingfield and remains on a winning mark. She makes more appeal than Estonia, who is upped in class after winning over C&D last time and Nially Noo, who landed a maiden on the Fibresand earlier this month. Dancing Freddy's only victory on the all-weather also came at Southwell and preference is for CREW CUT. He scored over today's trip at Nottingham in September and has been placed in more competitive sprints than this since then, including a third at Bath last time with Triple Dream behind.
