PERFECT WORDS (NAP) made all over course and distance last time to win by two lengths going away. Most of a penalty is negated by Jordan Nason's allowance and he could prove the one to beat again. Lord Buffhead was a clear winner at Ayr last time and won last year's renewal while Spring Bird is lightly-raced for her age and is only upped 4lb for scoring at Newcastle. Showtime Star and Pavers Star are others to consider on the back of recent placed efforts.
