Another Wise Kid won his maiden over 6f in 2011 but all subsequent victories have come over the minimum trip, including his latest at Pontefract. Out Do had easier opportunities off lower marks earlier in the year while Cosmic Chatter's long losing run continues and stablemate Waffle managed to get beat when odds-on in a claimer last time. Only a neck separated My Name Is Rio and Secret Look at Pontefract and both could figure but PIPERS NOTE is preferred. The latter is only 3lb higher than when landing a double over track and trip last summer and should be spot on now with a couple of outings under his belt.
