Verdict

This looks less competitive than the previous division and HIP HIP HOORAY can take advantage. The dual course and distance winner is now back on a winning mark and, after showing signs of a return to form over track and trip last time, Luke Dace's mare gets the nod. Menadati will appreciate the drop back to a mile and can figure along with Songbird Blues, though Pastoral Jet makes more appeal with a 7lb claimer on board having scored over course and distance in October. Wolverhampton winner Sinchiroka was disappointing at the same track on Tuesday and is hard to predict.
