Hot Rod Mamma is tempting dropped in class but hasn't won since 2011 while Dakota Canyon finished ahead of Ingleby Angel at Hamilton last time but the latter will have come on for that reappearance run. Eastward Ho and Skyfire posted better efforts on their latest starts and should figure again in this similar company but RAAMZ gets a chance to open her account. The lightly-raced six-year-old was making her handicap debut when a close-up third at Hamilton on her first start for over a year and that should have blown any cobwebs away. Outlaw Torn could prove best of the rest.
