In division two of the handicap Wake Up Call as shaped really well in three maiden runs but she's difficult to assess now in the handicap ranks so we'd much rather chance at some more value by focusing on Swinbrook and MUSICAL SCRIPT with the latter getting the call. It looks like the selection is beginning to find some form having improved since the turn of October. He only just found one too good last time and off just a pound higher mark can go one better this time. Swinbrook is well treated on the pick of his form and scored on his only previous attempt over course and distance so could very well bounce back to form. Wake Up Call shaped really well in a couple of maidens before getting off the mark in fine style at Kempton on her latest run. It could be she's off a light weight here but there's no way to be certain. Gentle Guru's six pounds rise in the weights looks fair after scoring last time out but he has been inconsistent in the main while Make My Dream has yet to score in 28 attempts over this trip. It's a wide open contest so value could be the way to go and we do so with Musical Script.
