The Dapper Tapper finished runner-up at Brighton on his debut but has disappointed in a couple of subsequent starts. Cartmell Cleave showed up for a long way on his introduction at Salisbury but faded badly in the closing stages. He's still preferred to White Vin Jan and Bannister Bell but the newcomer WILLOW CREEK will not have to be a world beater to land this. A half-sister to three-time winner Admiralty, the Haggas filly can make a winning start.
