A big field sprint is a bit of a novelty at this track and plenty turn up with a live chance, not least Ajjaadd. He bids for a hat-trick and may well succeed, though his hold-up style means he'll need luck in-running. Clear Ice had Magical Speedfit behind when scoring over the minimum trip here on Wednesday and should figure again while the likes of Spanish Acclaim, Titus Gent and Alfresco are others with claims. However, a chance is taken on YURITUNI, who is still improving judged on her latest third in a higher-grade race at Bath so gets the nod.
