Sir Mark Prescott originally had two entered in this apprentice handicap but has left just SPEED DATING in the line-up and that one gets the nod to reverse the form of his last meeting with Sircozy while Blue Tango should also show up in the mix. Unbeaten at this track in two starts the selection landed plenty of prize money off low looking marks before a slightly disappointing run last time. A return to this venue should help him bounce back and a bare reading of the form from his defeat to Sircozy two starts ago put puts the ball firmly back in his court. Blue Tango just got up on his first go over course and distance but life will now be tougher under a 6lb penalty while Resentful Angel was also on top last time and should be fairly treated after being better value for that success than the margin suggests. This looks a pretty decent contest and Speed Dating is given the chance to bounce back.
