There's not much separating these at the weights but PLUCKY DIP won at Kempton last month and finished second off today's higher mark over track and trip last week. He gets the vote ahead of Handwoven, placed on numerous occasions but winless after 17 starts. Vied wasn't beaten far at Wolverhampton in November and could figure on her handicap debut while What A Dandy had showed some progress before encountering soft ground at Windsor last time. Born To Fly won over 7f here in August and has a shout with an apprentice's allowance helping his cause.
