Andrew Balding has won a couple of maiden races here of late which boosts confidence in YOU DA ONE making a winning comeback. He was placed at Newmarket and York last year and has the best form of these. Milly's Gift showed promise on her debut over track and trip in October but Firmdecisions has the more recent form with a couple of placed efforts at Lingfield that give him a chance. Belle Isle ran green on her introduction at Wolverhampton last month but it would be no surprise to see a big improvement from her today.
