Enchanting Smile enjoys a love affair with this track but she's gone up 9lb since winning a novices' event here in June and the easier ground is a real worry. Conditions should suit Worcester fourth Kruseman, however, while Bajan Blu was in decent form prior to his run here earlier in the month. McCoy partners Kiama Bay and a market move would be interesting but FAIR DREAMER (NAP) looks a cut above these on his best form and can open his account over timber.
