Graylyn Ruby was winning his first race since 2010 when scoring over track and trip recently and doesn't make much appeal carrying a penalty for that success. Geeaitch is usually thereabouts without winning and it could be a similar story in this while Bapak Pesta is upped in class off a higher mark after landing a Class 7 event here last time. Our Golden Girl finished a lot closer under today's apprentice when runner-up on her latest start and is preferred to Shalambar and Ogaritmo. SEE AND BE SEEN won three times last year and went very close off today's mark at Wolverhampton in October. Sylvester Kirk's charge gets the nod on his reappearance.
