Rated much higher on the all-weather, PULL THE PIN still has a few pound to play with after scoring for the first time on Turf at Hamilton. Paul Green's charge gets the nod ahead of Sophie's Beau, who won a amateurs race here back in August. Irish Girls Spirit is a winner without a penalty having won an apprentices race at Musselburgh with Headstight well back in fourth. She's another to consider along with Prigsnov Dancer.
