Abi Scarlet has taken advantage of a tumble down the weights and won her last couple of outings over 6f here. But her earlier failed attempts at today's longer trip are off-putting and RUWAIYAN is preferred. He handled the surface well enough on his previous start at this track despite not staying the 1m4f. A winner over today's distance since then, he gets the vote. Ace Master is upped in class after scoring over a mile here last time and has the beating of Repetition and Bay Knight, while Two No Bids easily beat Docofthebay at this track in December but broke a blood vessel back here last time.
