MR RED CLUBS landed a hat-trick at Wolverhampton last month for three different trainers. He only needed to be pushed out to score on his debut for Tim Pitt last time and is taken to follow up with an apprentice negating most of a 6lb penalty. Yarmouth winner Biba Diva returns to action and has plenty of scope for improvement, along with Bapak Pintar, who was placed in all three starts on the turf last year. Haafhd Handsome could have a say on his handicap debut and makes more appeal than Let Your Love Flow, who should go well again without being good enough to win.
