Anaconda made a promising return to action at Lingfield last month when finding only Lockantanks too good. He's likely to make a bold bid from the front and makes more appeal than the closely matched Verse Of Love and Chapter And Verse. Only a head separated the latter pair over track and trip last time and it's anybody's guess which one will prevail in this while Kung Hei Fat Choy has a tough task on today's terms. Hold-up horse PISCEAN should get the race run to suit and Tom Keddy's course and distance winner gets the vote in what looks a tricky contest.
