Whistable Native scored over 7f here last month with Putin and Trust Me Boy behind but has something to prove over this longer trip. Rockme Cockney and Percythepinto are other 7f winners beaten off higher marks last time and Cha Ching makes more appeal on her recent victory over a mile at Bath, though she's up 5lb for that. DAFFYDOWNDILLY has been placed over C&D on a couple of occasions so the top weight gets the vote as this looks a less competitive contest then when runner-up to Toga Tiger at this track in June.
