Verdict

PIPERS NOTE has been in good form so far this season and ran well when finishing third over C&D last time out. Ruth Carr's charge is flexible in terms of tactics and he can confirm form with the horse who finished one place behind him on that occasion Lexington Abbey today. Top weight Mirza ran well when finishing runner-up in a Group 3 last time and off a mark just 1lb higher than for his most recent handicap success he can claim third today.
