Smart Daisy K has her first start on the Polytrack but has gone very close in a couple of runs on good to soft ground on Turf and must be thereabouts if taking to the surface. FREE ISLAND travelled strongly for a long way on debut at Beverley, however, and with that run under his belt can open his account on this sharper track. Skytrain has been absent since making his debut at York in May but should prove better than that run in time and is preferred to Scott Dixon's newcomer Jiminy of the others.
