Touch The Clouds has won four times over the minimum trip this year but was beaten seven lengths over 6f at Wolverhampton last month. HIPZ makes more appeal as she has every chance on these terms and scored over today's distance at Kempton before a couple of more recent outings over further. George Baker's filly should also have the edge on Kodafine, placed in similar company here early in the month. Sebs Sensei has gone steadily backwards since his debut at Newbury but is not completely written off dropping down in class for this.
