AUSSIE BLUE saves his best for this track nowadays and scored over C&D a fortnight ago. He'd earlier finished second to So Wise, who runs in the first division of this, and looks capable of following up off a 3lb higher mark. You've Been Mowed has won four times this season, but all on turf, and June's C&D winner Justcallmehandsome makes more appeal on the back of his close-up sixth in better company here last time. Kempton scorer Dazakhee will appreciate the return to today's shorter trip and Island Chief can race off a lower mark back on the all-weather.
