Pirouetting is given a narrow vote in a wide open handicap, Whatizzit and Torrens could provide most danger. Barry Hills has an excellent record at this unique track and Pirouetting is now down to a very handy mark. She finished a close up third in a decent race at Sandown back in October, over this trip and on similar ground. She is two punds lower today and so a repeat effort should be good enough. Whatizzit doesn't know how to run a bad race and her recent third behind Nosferatu has been given a tremendous boost with the winner going in again. The draw is a slight concern with Ed Dunlop's charge but she should still be in the shake up. Torrens has gone well here in the past and although a little high in the weights he could still make the frame. Latif is well treated at present and there were signs of a form revival last time, but Pirouetting does look the pick of the weights today and she gets our vote.
