Pearl Noir has experience of the track but is without a win in 17 starts now and Anjuna Beach returned a losing odds-on favourite over course and distance at this time last year. Better Value ran well at Lingfield on his first start for a new yard and Lateral Thinking has joined James Evans after making the frame at Down Royal in July. But SUGAR TOWN caught the eye making late progress to finish third over 7f here on her racecourse debut and she gets the vote to open her account over today's extra distance.
