Dijon looks hot for Hove success.
It's good to see the management giving A11 graders the chance of a lifetime in running for a superb pounds 500 first prize and, amazingly, all three heats resulted in photo-finishes with just 11 spots between the six qualifiers.
The fancy is Wendy Short's DIJON LASS (T2), who can produce a well-timed run to get up close home.
Belle Vue stage their second decider in the series and this can go to Brian Thompson's puppy JACK OF DIAMONDS (T4 10.10). The March 2010 whelp tends to play his cards late and is fancied to run this opposition down from the final bend.
Oxford's pounds 500 showdown is due off at 10.05, with Richard Baker's MOVEALONG MAX (T5), who recorded the fastest heat time when pinging out and making all in 27.10sec, looking drawn for action.
