Pipers Piping landed a handicap at Wolverhampton last month but is not particularly well treated at the weights here and preference is for STEVIE GEE. He never got involved against higher-rated rivals over C&D on Monday but this is less competitive and Ian Williams' charge can take advantage. Finefrenzyrolling and Timpanist have claims on their placed form over today's trip, while Dvinsky showed a bit more over 6f last time. Ezra Church will have come on for his recent comeback and is another to consider.
