HALLJOY ran below par when last seen at the track in September though she wasn't disgraced in Group races earlier including a third in the Prestige at Goodwood. Clive Britain's filly is the one to beat if running anywhere near her official mark of 93. Trust The Wind made only a modest comeback at Wolverhampton recently but is still preferred to Alpine Mist and Mrs Burbidge. Newcomer Sparkling Ace wouldn't have to be anything out of the ordinary to get involved and is worth a second glance.
