Gracie's Games remains in fine form though both recent wins came on soft ground at Chepstow and she was beaten on a faster surface at Carlisle in between. Hereford Boy may well reverse recent running with her today. C'Mon You Irons has every chance of repeating 2009's win in this race off his current mark having gone close at Goodwood last time, but a chance is taken on QUESTIONNAIRE. She looked an improved filly when scoring on her return to action at Chepstow recently and with more to come from Nicky Vaughan's charge on her handicap debut, she gets the nod. Desert Icon and Memphis Man are others to consider.
