Huzzah runs the occasional good race and is well handicapped but hasn't win for over four years. LADY BAYSIDE has run five of her seven races on this track and gained her only success on soft ground over 7f in August. She was finishing very strongly at Salisbury last time and looks set for her second victory. Gracie's Games likes it around here though she would probably prefer some cut in the ground while Diamond Vine appears better on Polytrack nowadays. Spirit Of Gondree has been racing over much further but the lightly-raced Royal Selection shows good pace and looks well enough handicapped to give a good account.
