Beach Candy has been in good form in lesser grade sprints but was engaged to run here yesterday. Diamond Vine is back on a winning mark and is worth consideration as he won this last year while Jack My Boy went close over 7f last time and Waabel is capable of showing up at this level. Ice Trooper and Speak The Truth are course and distance winners with claims but a chance is taken on MY OWN WAY HOME who has shown recent signs of a resurgence and scored on the Turf track here off today's mark back in August.
