David Pipe's team is flying at present and there seems little point in opposing TAJ BADALANDABD after he made an impressive winning debut for new connections over 1m6f here 11 days ago. He was staying on strongly at the death so the extra yardage won't be a problem. Mirkat never threatened on debut at Fontwell and may need more time so newcomer Empty The Tank, a half-brother to a winning chaser, may be the one for forecast-backers.
