Good Of Luck bids to follow up last month's victory here over a shorter trip but this looks a better contest. Bajan Blu has been doing well in low-grade races while Tenby Jewel had the frustrating Bathwick Man behind here last time and makes more appeal than the maiden Dazinski. PARTY PALACE has won four times around here and usually takes on stronger opposition. She's gradually coming down the handicap and it will be a surprise if she's not involved at the business end in a race like this. Mackeys Forge has been chasing in Ireland and this is his first start for new connections.
