They move on to the Polytrack surface for the remainder of the meeting and AIYANA scored over this course and distance in October. She'll have come on for her reappearance at Southwell and the champion jockey's presence in the saddle suggests she means business. Bramshill Lass is another course and distance winner and, though arriving out of form, has dropped back to a winning mark. Mont Jess has yet to score but finished ahead of the latter at Kempton last time while Poitin won over today's trip at the same track in February. Sir Frank Morgan is preferred to 1m2f winner Munsarim over today's trip.
