CURLY COME HOME boasts a consistent and progressive profile over the past year and ran out a decisive winner over 1m2f at Doncaster last month. She's been raised to a career-high mark of 75 but seems to have really found her form as a 4-y-o especially and can give her jockey a success on his first ride in public. Wordiness looks an all-weather specialist, Dancing Primo is out of form, Whitby Jet finds it hard to win and Mister Fizz has been off a year so Shirataki, second here behind Standpoint last time, seems likely to emerge as the prime threat. The concern about the Hiatt inmate is that he's yet to score in the forecast conditions but a good run is anticipated all the same.
