Verdict

Telegraph had slipped down the weights before scoring over track and trip last week and is harder to fancy under a 6lb penalty. Indian Affair has been thereabouts off his current mark of late and could go close while Opus Dei was placed here last month in between a couple of modest efforts. It's been just over three years since Piccolo Express last won a race so a chance is taken on SUNI DANCER on her return to action as she's now 5lb lower than when winning at Carlisle back in August.
