PERFECT LIGHT just got home over 1m2f at Redcar to win her maiden so this stiff mile should suit the Haggas filly. She gets the vote ahead of the progressive Arrowzone, who won again at Leicester a fortnight ago in soft ground. Something went amiss with Ripon winner Bold Captain back at the same track last time, aside from not staying the 1m2f, as he finished tailed off while King Of Macedon continues to find life tough off his current mark. Emef Diamond and Spiceupyourlife were both placed on their latest starts with preference for the latter who won here in May.
