Bondesire is on a hat-trick after victories over course and distance and at Newcastle last month. Paul Hanagan should be able to grab a rails spot from stall six and David O'Meara's filly won't go down without a fight. Pipers Note won by three lengths over track and trip last time but has a lot to find to overturn Pontefract form with LINE OF REASON. The top weight beat him by half-a-length at the West Yorkshire track earlier and is 7lb better off today. A subsequent fourth for Paul Midgley's sprinter against older horses at Doncaster was no disgrace and his second to Moviesta in April was decent form so Fallon's mount should take all the beating in this. Antonio Gramsci beat a subsequent scorer here two runs ago but didn't run up to that form at Leicester and the fast ground today is a concern.
