With the ground against Your Gifted, MISS FIREFLY is taken to land the last, with Dualagi also set to go well. The selection has been in consistent form on the Polytrack of late, winning over 6f at Wolverhampton and making the frame there on two other occasions. She goes well here and continues to look very competitive from her current mark and we will side with her. Your Gifted tends to do best over a sharp 5f and when there is some cut in the ground, so there are reasons to take her on here on grounds of trip and going, while she has to prove herself on this track. Dualagi is at her best on fast ground and over 6f, so she would have to have claims here from a mark 2lbs lower than her last turf win. True Red has run well here in defeat in the past but a win is proving beyond her and tonight might not be her night once again, so we will side with Miss Firefly.
