Plenty with a decent shout in this but LIVING THE LIFE makes most appeal. She scored over track and trip before going very close here once again last week with Piddie's Power close behind in fourth and Fieldgunner Kirkup well beaten. Fantasy Gladiator has a penalty to contend with having won over course and distance last time but should still be thereabouts and it may be too soon to write off Iptisam after a poor effort at Musselburgh, given he'd landed a double over today's trip earlier. Bogsnog isn't out of this either only 2lb higher than last month's win over course and distance.
