MANDY LAYLA comes out best at the weights. She's yet to race on Polytrack but her win at Chester in August suggests today's course will suit. Stripped Bear has won over the minimum trip at Kempton and that form gives him the beating of both Red Star Lady and Windforpower though the latter finished ahead of disappointing favourite Marmot Bay in a seller here earlier in the week. The remainder look up against it on today's terms.
