OH SO SPICY went close to following up her Windsor victory late last season when second at Yarmouth on her seasonal bow. Back on fast ground today, Chris Wall's charge can return to winning ways. Heavy going looks a legitimate excuse for Flashbang's latest poor effort as she'd scored on the Polytrack here before that but Dancing Welcome may prefer slower ground as she had Strictly Pink behind when runner-up in soft going at Windsor recently. Piddie's Power has yet to show her best this year but the presence of Ryan Moore in the saddle suggests better is expected today.
