David Pipe's Frosted Grape has been in fine form of late but faces no easy task from 11lb out of the handicap proper, while stable companion Swing Bill seems a shade high in the handicap and a better bet may be another Pipe runner, QULINTON. The six-year-old is unexposed over fences and may be worth another chance after a promising reappearance run at Newton Abbot last month when just behind Swing Bill but with two of today's rivals behind. Grand Slam Hero has harshly gone up 12lb for his win at Ffos Las last month, while Martin Todhunter's That's Rhythm is up 11lb for his victory at Bangor. It is difficult to know which one of the four is the pick of Peter Bowen's runners in the race but No Panic looks the best of the quartet, although it is Qulinton that gets the vote to win.
