A winner form just out of the weights last time HIP HIP HOORAY gets the shout to repeat the feat ahead of handicap debutante Army Of Stars while Who's Winning should go well for a place. That latest win for the pick was particularly easy and capped a good run of form. He's up four pounds in the handicap now but he's won off this mark in the past and the booking of Kieron Fallon can only be a positive. Army Of Stars has been progressive in three maidens and should improve again so despite not being a stand-out at the weights he is considered a live danger. Who's Winning continues to run well for limited returns and seems weighted to do the same again and Bold Diva also fits into that category with her holding her form well since a victory three starts ago. Cadeaux Fax should be a leading player if returning fit and ready but in a tight race Hip Hip Hooray can follow up.
