After struggling to get involved on the turf, Beach Babe ran a better race back at this track last time when beaten only a length. But Twisted finished close behind and re-opposes on better terms today with his apprentice claiming 5lb. However, with Star Addition and Danceyourselfdizzy both struggling for form, this can go to SMART VIOLETTA. She's shown plenty of improvement since she last raced at this track with a couple of wins on the turf to her credit and a repeat of her latest run, when narrowly defeated at Beverley, would be good enough to land this.
