PRETTY BUBBLES handled the surface well enough when third here last year but has looked in the handicapper's grip since recording a double on the Polytrack. However, she has little to beat in this on recent form and gets the vote. Wyldfire has slipped down the weights since winning a maiden race at Redcar nearly a year ago and Tight Knit is another on a decent mark compared to his best efforts in the past. Either of that pair could bounce back while Midaz, who showed little last season, may do better this year.
