ZED CANDY GIRL has shown good progress this year, winning four times including her latest start over track and trip. She's up another 8lb but has little to beat and is worth sticking with. Wotalad was winning for the first time in 19 attempts when successful here last time while Schottische has yet to score this year, though nearly did at Ffos Las recently. Wild Hill Boy is unexposed and makes more appeal than Medam and For Shia And Lula, who are usually thereabouts at this level.
