Bondi Mist hinted at a return to form over 1m5f here last time and is well treated nowadays. Richard Hughes' booking is an obvious plus. Noor Al Haya was knocking on the door in the spring while Fuzzy Logic has a chance of reversing Ffos Las running in June with Lucky Diva on much more favourable terms. Graylyn Ruby won under Kieran Shoemark at Lingfield in June but has been well beaten twice since on Turf. EASTERN MAGIC gave weight and a beating to Lucky Diva here two years ago and is the one to beat on his win in a higher grade at Doncaster in June, though needs forgiving a modest effort on the Polytrack last time.
