It could be a good night for punters who fancy SPEED DATING and he is given the nod to get the better of Hawk's Eye and Caster Sugar. Sir Mark Prescott is in fantastic form and Speed Dating looked a colt to stay on the right side of when he won at Carlisle beating Hypnotic Gaze. This longer trip will suit and he will be hard to beat. Hawk's Eye has lots of ability but he is a frustrating sort and he does have an awkward head carriage. If he puts it all together he can go close, but the percentage call is to take him on. Caster Sugar was denied a hat-trick of wins at Sandown last time and she shapes as though the handicapper may be catching up with her. Featherweight has won over this course and distance but she has failed to fire on her last two starts. The Dial House has questions to answer regarding his ability to see out this trip, and we will stick with Speed Dating to land the nightcap.
