These classified events are usually tight affairs on official ratings and this looks no different, but ALHAARTH BEAUTY stands out on recent form. She scored with a bit in hand at Yarmouth last month and it could pay to stick with Ismail Mohammed's filly in this. There was plenty of cut when Harbour Captain beat Hot Secret at this track last month and he's been well beaten since while Silverrica is a course regular but usually finds one to good as she did last time when well behind Daylight, who runs in the previous race. Kodatish won his maiden here but was tailed off on his recent reappearance and the maiden, Little Choosey, has a bit to find.
