In a race that won't take a great deal of winning a risk is taken with TALLAWALLA. Richard Hughes is an eye-catching jockey booking on board this filly and based on her victory at Kempton in August she looks weighted for a big run. Miss Whippy has been running well defeat and lost nothing when only held by Always Dixie in a seller. Rigid ran better than the bare result suggests last time so shouldn't be ignored but Tallawalla is weighted to run well.
