Whipphound looks sure to go close again having won a seller over C&D last month beating three of today's rivals in the process. One of those was SLATEY HEN, who has since won herself at Lingfield. Better off at the weights here, Richard Fahey's filly can reverse the form and take this. Tony Hollis and Scommettitrice should also finish closer to the top-weight but with the promise of better to come the lightly-raced maiden Arowana could prove a bigger threat.
