WESTERN DIVA, who has been beaten narrowly at Towcester and Taunton, could cap an excellent day for the Pipe team by going one better here. She's just preferred to Meetmeatthemoon, who is open to improvement and was only beaten a short-head on her debut over course and distance last month. Jennys Surprise wasn't beaten far at Towcester in December and Goneinaglance was third at Kempton when a 66/1 chance. Hinton Magic and Beautiful Gem are newcomers to monitor for any market support.
