Priddie's Power looks in need of some respite from the handicapper and Imprimis Tagula's recent wins have come on the Fibresand at Southwell. Howyadoingnotsobad bids for a hat-trick off a 7lb higher mark after a couple of wins at Kempton and should go well along with recent Wolverhampton winner Enjoyment. However, TIMES ELEGANCE is only 2lb higher than last July's win at Ayr and with a reappearance fourth at Catterick under her belt, David Barron's filly gets the vote.
