Course specialist EIJAAZ won this race last year and was scoring for the sixth time at this track when beating today's rival Hel's Angel over C&D last month. The latter is slightly better off here but her front-running style leaves her vulnerable to Geoff Harker's late finisher and he can confirm superiority and go in again. It'll be a surprise if any of the others get into this on today's terms though Royal Jet is not badly treated if retaining his ability after a two year absence. Unex Goya won over a shorter trip at Yarmouth in June and makes most appeal of the remainder.
