OCEANWAY represents Mark Johnston and Johnny Murtagh and he performed in much stronger company last summer landing a Class 2 handicap at York in October. He has winning form on Polytrack and can make the journey pay off. Flavia Tatiana is a consistent performer who is flourishing on this surface as she showed when beating Elizabeth Coffee in a decent C&D handicap two weeks ago. She's closely matched with Solo Performer on a line through the runner-up and the latter should go well despite a big weight. Baitsileir, who was around 5l behind Flavia Tatiana that night, is better off at the weights and should get closer.
