Pipers Piping bids for a hat-trick under a penalty but should make another bold bid regardless. Benandonner is holding his form well and went in again at Lingfield last time, but Ellaal remains 8lb higher than his win here in December and has struggled of late. My Single Malt is dropped in class in an attempt to end a losing run stretching back to 2010 while Delightful Sleep is back on a winning mark and may figure. COLOUR MY WORLD will need to step up on last month's handicap debut effort but has enough scope to do so and Ed McMahon's charge gets the nod to come good in this.
