RAY OF JOY is less than reliable but is due one of her better efforts. She should have done better last time but a repeat of an earlier second to Rigolleto over track and trip would see her bang there at the finish. Harvest Mist has made the frame on her last couple of outings and is preferred to Mill I Am, whose recent course wins have been over 7f and who has a further 5lb rise to contend with today. Two In The Pink won her maiden here last year but still looks a shade high in the weights on her recent form.
