Ozz showed plenty of promise on this track before scoring at Chester in May but a long absence won't be in her favour in this competitive affair. Arabian Flight has the form for this at her best and generally runs well here but a strike-rate of 1-32 hardly inspires confidence. SPARK OF GENIUS completed a double over track and trip at the turn of the year and has suffered in the weights as a consequence but a first-time visor and her jockey's claim can help her get back to winning ways. Big Sylv was in front of her three weeks ago but that was over a longer trip and the positions can be reversed.
