Joanne Foster is trying to strike while the iron is hot with Cara Court, who is on a hat-trick after following up his course and distance victory with a win over fences at Sedgefield on Sunday. He shouldn't be far away while Takaatuf has only found one too good the last twice at Musselburgh. Danceintothelight was well backed here in January and regular pilot Joe Colliver is back on board today while Andy Vic has a chance on his previous form over track and trip. SCRIPTWRITER is in the veteran stage now but the good ground is a major factor in his favour and he's back on a winning mark. Not beaten far here in December. Evelyn Slack's gelding gets the nod.
