Verdict

Kiama Bay completed a hat-trick in 2011 but went so far up in the weights that he's not won since. He's now back on a winnable mark and showed a bit more dash at Haydock last time. NOBLE SILK is well up to this standard and, though his two strong recent efforts have been over further, a likely strong gallop will play to his strengths and he can win again. Beaufort Twelve has become disappointing since winning two of his first three last season and Rio's Rosanna has suffered in the weights after her victory at York last summer. Muharrer has been beaten in seven handicaps at around this mark since making a winning debut here in September.
