Alhaarth Beauty and Pira Palace are both dropping back in distance after decent efforts over 7f last time and the former is preferred to stablemate Glossy Posse. Handicap debutants Spiritual Girl and Cross Pattee may finish closer in this and Musselburgh winner Surely Speightful will be more at home in a handicap having been well beaten in Pattern races of late. Meet Me Halfway and Reconsider Baby are other previous winners in with a shout but neither AYASHA or Flighty Clarets handled the soft ground when they competed in the same race at Hamilton last time. The former came out best on that occasion and gets the nod today on her earlier maiden win at Redcar.
