Mark Johnston's Nawaashi just did enough when successful at Redcar recently and looks plenty high enough in the weights for her debut in a handicap so looks best watched today in a race taken to go to BAY OF FIRES. David O'Meara's filly was a winner over course and distance in July and showed her liking for the venue when narrowly beaten here earlier this month so she looks worth backing to resume winning ways racing off the same mark today. James Given's Baileys Moneypenny has shown gradual improvement in maidens and could be of interest first time in this grade, while Michael Bell's Biaraafa has yet to confirm that she stays this trip. First Class Favour is 2lb worse in with the selection for just under a length on running here earlier this month and Bay Of Fires can confirm that form and win again.
