Having made the frame on her last five starts on Polytrack and Fibresand, PLACE THAT FACE is becoming a little frustrating. Saying that, this looks her easiest opportunity to date and she's given another chance to open her account. Summer Sun posted her best effort so far when third at Lingfield last week and looks the chief threat ahead of the likes of Ishi and Green Mountain. The remainder have yet to show any worthwhile form and are hard to fancy as result.
