Golden Sparkle has been raised a massive 12lb since winning at Perth and will do well to score again off her new mark. She's conceding 22lb to MRS EFF and Philip Kirby's mare can complete her hat-trick after fairly comfortable wins at Newcastle and Wetherby. Gulf Punch showed a bit more at Sedgefield last time while Overpriced has been in good form of late, though is now on a career-high mark. Detour Ahead appeals more than Leish Oscar of the remainder.
