Verdict

David Pipe won last year's renewal with Premier Dane and the progressive MASSANNIE can follow suit. Upped 8lb as she goes in search of a four-timer, the handicapper hasn't got near her yet and she should cope with today's step up in class. Va'Vite is proven at this level having won a similar event over 2m3f here earlier in the month but First In The Queue pushed the latter all the way to the line and they're hard to separate in this. Taigan is another on the upgrade but has been raised a further 9lb on the back of a hat-trick at Southwell while neither Man Of Leisure nor Leath Acra Mor could cope with a rise in the weights last time. Swampfire has a bit to find with Va'Vite but will have come on for the outing.
