Verdict

Know Your Name can figure if improving slightly on her fourth at Haydock a fortnight ago. The same comment applies to Pipe Dream on his latest effort at Warwick but Tyrsal looks in the handicappers grip and Ice Slice has yet to prove he stays this far. One of the less exposed types may be good enough with Southwell winners Bousfield and Walta stepping up in distance while better is expected from Woodbridge back on fast ground. However, ROLLING DICE went close despite starting 20/1 at Salisbury in October and he gets the tentative vote on his return.
