David Pipe has a good strike rate here and THE TRACEY SHUFFLE is his only runner today. He's not really fired so far this year but is dropping down the weights and didn't appear to stay 3m at Ffos Las last time. He gets a tentative vote though Toye Native was third over a shorter trip here last time and stays 2m4f. He has to go on the short-list while Bright Abbey has been placed over 2m3f at Newton Abbot and Market Rasen recently. Parson's Punch is another recent course winner and preferred to the returning Los Nadis and plater Waltz Darling of the others.
