Beacon Lady won an amateurs race last week having rattled up a hat trick over 1m4f at this track before that. But she's now 15lb higher than her latest win at this venue and Curly Come Home is preferred having won cosily over course and distance recently. Qawaafy and Remix came up short last time having also taken a hike up the weights for earlier victories but SORYAH had excuses for her recent below par effort. She never figured in soft ground over 1m4f at Ffos Las but scored over today's trip at Epsom last month and gets the vote to return to winning ways back on fast ground.
