Course winner Mister Frosty isn't out of this on his return from a lengthy absence and Layla's Boy has claims on his first start since April. Like Clockwork and Lord Golan have yet to race on this surface but Goodlukin Lucy has a shout off her current mark. MISS ELLA JADE went close over track and trip in August with Goldie Horn a length behind in third. Richard Whitaker's filly gets the nod to confirm running and come out best in this.
