Hamoody arrives in fine fettle and has form at the track but fellow veteran FOXY MUSIC makes more appeal on today's terms. The latter returned an easy winner in a handicap over course and distance in April and Eric Alston's charge can land this with a similar effort. Baytown Kestrel has a shout at the weights but has yet to beat a rival this year and Come On Dave is preferred having won a couple of plating races at Wolverhampton recently beating Speightowns Kid on one of those occasions. Only Ten Per Cent and Electric Qatar are others with claims back on this surface.
