This looks tricky as the two recent winners could end up taking each other on for the lead. Both Daylight and Pixilated made all for easy wins at this track and Yarmouth respectively on their latest starts but today's rivals look capable of keeping tabs on them. Almalekiah makes a quick reappearance after going close in similar company at Redcar last Saturday but SMART DAISY K ran well for third in a better race at Chester on her belated reappearance. Andrew Hollinshead's filly gets the nod to pounce late and come out best today.
