Tevez was unplaced here yesterday and looks on a high enough mark now if taking his chance. The consistent Pipers Piping is more of a Wolverhampton specialist but he's won here and shouldn't be dismissed. NUBAR BOY's only success in 22 starts came over this C&D and though he's become a bit of a professional loser he was definitely unlucky behind Pragmatist at Kempton and can go one better. Hinton Admiral, who was once rated 108, is now down to 70 and there are very good reasons for the drop so he is overlooked.
