McCool Bannanas has been running well at around his current mark without success although he's dropped in class here and cannot be ruled out, but Piccolo Express has done all his winning over 7f including at this track last time and he's 5lb higher today. JUST FIVE scored over C&D last month and remains well handicapped on his best form after going close again at this track a fortnight ago. He gets the vote ahead of Spin Cast, who is still without a win but has claims dropping another 4lb down the weights with Jamie Spencer taking over the reins.
