CLASSY ANNE was a winner without a penalty at Hamilton on Wednesday and duly completed the hat-trick. Jack Garrity is back on board to negate a penalty for that success and Jim Goldie's filly can go in again. Gottcher has decent claims on his reappearance and finished ahead of both Tom Sawyer and Algar Lad over track and trip in October. Bapak Bangsawan was due to run at Haydock yesterday but finished in front of Captain Royale when third at Carlisle earlier while Roy's Legacy is upped 5lb for his recent victory over track and trip. Bunce has a bit to find with the selection on earlier running.
