Big Time Frank gets a change of headgear having gone close on his last four outings including narrow-margin defeats over these fences to Burgess Dream and Goring One. But the latter pair have both been beaten since and a chance is taken on WAIKIKI WAVES. The latter has something to prove over this far but made a winning start over fences when scoring over 2m here last month and Gary Moore’s charge could be worth sticking with raised only 4lb. The Boss's Dream ran well for a long way at Uttoxeter last time having tumbled down the weights and may prove best of the rest.
