Whipphound beat previous winner Dishy Guru at Bath but a 7lb rise may prove beyond him. Louis Vee has been making merry in Class 7 company on the Polytrack but will find this tougher but it's only a matter of time before Avonmore Star takes advantage of his slide down the weights. The lightly-raced Addictive Nature finished closer last time, but PICC OF BURGAU is also unexposed and he gets the token vote in a low grade sprint ahead of recent Yarmouth runner-up Dark Lane.
