Verdict

Wooden King just got up on soft ground at Ffos Las 11 days ago but may struggle here off a higher mark. BEST BE CAREFUL is 2lb lower than her last winning mark and has Richard Hughes doing the steering today. She's been running well enough in slightly better company lately to suggest she can open her seasonal account in this ahead of Beauty Pageant, who is edging towards a lenient mark, and Hot Secret. The latter is also starting to come down the weights while Spray Tan is only a three-year-old and this is her best trip.
