SPANISH PLUME has gone up for 4lb since running Highlife Dancer to a neck at Bath earlier this month but the winner won easily again on Saturday and Andrew Hollinshead's charge has every chance of ending a frustrating run here. The yard also have Lacey in the line-up and he's likely to improve now going handicapping. Ian Williams' Flat team is going well and The Great Gabrial is another possible improver but King Fingal's form is in sellers and claimers. Mr Lando has got his act together at Lingfield recently and must go well and is preferred to the inconsistent Flash Crash and Arabela.
