PISTE is our play against Dispol Kylie and Revue Princess. The selection was a big price at Ripon last time out but she actually ran much better than those odds suggested for a long way and that experience won't have been lost upon her. Dispol Kylie finished ahead of Mey Blossom when they met at Newcastle. That was no mean achievement given the relatively quiet form of the stable. Revue Princess has dropped some way down the handicap and with her yard in form, it would be no surprise to see her bounce back to form. David Elsworth has only one runner at the meeting so watch Picnic Party closely in the betting. Red Rosanna was due to run at Chester on Saturday. Oondiri returns off a featherweight and should have few issues in relation to fast ground. There are likely to be a few hard luck tales but Piste did enough at Ripon to suggest that her turn will not be too far away.
