Nolecce was very impressive in getting his second win in three starts last time and with more improvement likely he should go very well. That said this is his all-weather debut so with that doubt this could be a race for DANCING WELCOME. Milton Bradley's runner receives weight from all here, is weighted to get the better of Piper's Piping based on their last meeting and was only just held from this mark last time out. Lend A Grand has improved in two runs this season but more might be needed again to get the better of Dancing Welcome.
