FLYING PICKETS has been running well and winning at this track in claimers of late and gets the nod as he has nothing to fear from February's hat-trick heroine Samasana or Siouxies Dream on his earlier second to Clean Bowled. Tweet Lady and Daddy Warbucks are both lightly-raced and returning from lay-offs having ended last year on a winning note. They could figure if handling the surface, while Dansili Dutch has another crack at 7f after her second over 6f here last month with Ishiamiracle well behind. Chapellerie drops back down into a more suitable grade though she's yet to win a handicap.
