Redair is the highest rated of those with a handicap mark and has gone close in claiming company before. She's gone backwards since scoring on her debut at Kempton last March, but should still have the beating of Thorpe Bay, Miserere Mei and the disappointing Flaming Ferrari. Gem Of Wizdom has shown nothing in two starts so far, but STRIKE A POSE was spotted making progress in the latter stages of her debut here despite Hayley Turner having to cope with the saddle slipping. Jim Boyle's filly won't have to improve much to land this with normal luck in-running and gets the nod.
