SKINNY LOVE only won a seller over track and trip last Saturday but beat higher rated rivals in doing so and can defy a 4lb rise. Dazza also has claims on her maiden win at Windsor but that was back in October while Little Big Man has a shout returning to the Polytrack with Frankie Dettori taking over the reins. Three Pips is another to consider dropping down a grade while an apprentice's 7lb allowance will help the cause of Wolverhampton winner Tautira. Drinkuptrig ran well over 7f last time and may also get involved.
