JOHNNY SPLASH has been running well in plating company and this is no better. He split a couple of higher rated horses when runner-up here on Tuesday and gets the token vote as Beach Candy is upped in grade having won a couple of Class 7 handicaps at Kempton recently. Atlantic Beach has a bit to find with the selection but should figure while Speedyfix also has claims off his current mark and makes more appeal than both Sherjawy and Red Ramesses.
