Perfect Venture scored over track and trip during the summer. He's 5lb higher today but drops down a grade and Falasteen has also been competing in better company of late. Street Power went close over course and distance last week and has to come into the reckoning, while Welease Bwian scored over the minimum trip here in September. Two In The Pink won her maiden race over 6f at Kempton early this year but a speculative vote goes to another lightly-raced type in JOYOUS, making her handicap debut and having her first start on the all-weather.
