Given most of these are essentially well exposed it could pay to stick with the once-raced MON AMI JOLIE. He scored at the first time of asking at Wolverhampton in February, despite not getting a clear run, and there should be more to come from Richard Hannon's colt. Dorothy's Dancing continued her progress with her third win in four starts at Lingfield three weeks ago but she's upped a grade today while Twice Red had Homeboy behind over C&D recently and could figure again. The Wee Chief couldn't cope with a 4lb rise here last time but Waabel should be thereabouts as usual.
