DI'S GIFT appeared to benefit from first-time cheekpieces (worn again) when running away with an apprentice handicap over 1m4f here recently and, lining up off the same mark of 57, he can complete the double. Galileo's Spear was only two lengths behind the selection on his latest outing and could potentially improve for a first-time visor, while Mystikana also merits consideration following a couple of bronze-medal finishes.
Equipped with first-time cheekpieces, DI'S GIFT was well on top at the finish when resuming winning ways here last week. Assuming the headgear works equally well second time round, he should prove a tough nut to crack off the same mark. Mystikana is marginally preferred to Katie Gale for forecast purposes.
