WILD SAUCE has suffered a couple of narrow margin defeats since scoring at Wolverhampton in February. Bryan Smart's filly can go one better racing off the same mark as when second at Ayr last week. Diamond Blue still looks a shade high in the weights and gets a first-time visor but Oldjoesaid has dropped further down the ratings for his reappearance and could figure. Chosen One scored over C&D last month but is 8lb higher today and Come On Dave has a chance dropped in class.
