PENANG PEGASUS is the only one with a recent win to his credit and gets the token vote on that basis. He scored by a couple of lengths at Ayr earlier this month and is only 3lb higher today. Yojojo was soundly beaten on her handicap debut at this track but drops down a couple of grades and Hikma may do better stepping up in trip. Kathleensluckylad is another trying a longer distance after a couple of placed efforts and the disappointing Mexican Wave could prove best of the rest.
