Just Isla has done all her winning over 7f so far and last year's winner Saint Irene arrives in poor form. Loraine is up 5lb for her recent win on the Polytrack but Sword of The Lord went close on the same surface on a couple of occasions in August. South Cape is another whose best efforts of late have been on the all-weather so a chance is taken on ST GEORGES HILL, who has more scope than most making his handicap debut in this lowly grade.
