Eastern Impact and Suzi's Connoisseur are closely matched on running behind Fast Track here three weeks ago. Both get an apprentice on board for this and should confirm superiority with Lady Frances, Greeb, Ventura Mist and Oeil De Tigre. PENNY DROPS (NAP) reverts to 6f after a couple of creditable placed efforts in Listed company and the Haggas filly is taken to come out best given the likes of Boy In The Bar and Piazon are upped in class. Double Up has a bit more scope than most of these and could prove best of the rest.
