GUISHAN carries a penalty for last week's victory over track and trip but still has a few pounds to play with off her current mark. She makes more appeal than the frustrating Grace Hull, who usually manages to find at least one too good as when second to Maakirr here last time. Beachwood Bay made the frame over 7f on his latest start but has won twice over course and distance in the past while Solarmaite is back on a winning mark if in the mood. Ridgeway Hawk went close at this track back in May, but played up at the start on his reappearance and unseated in the same race that Orwellian finished third in.
