Katy's Secret had previous track winner Captainrisk behind when scoring over C&D last month. However, there's a suspicion she's best with some cut in the ground and SOUTH AFRICAN GOLD makes more appeal today. He's been raised only 2lb for his win over track and trip earlier this month and is taken to confirm that running with Angel Of Fashion, Yahafedh Alaih and Clerical. Cool Water Oasis and Fantasy Fighter are both sliding down the weights, but have a bit to find with Captainrisk on last month's form at this track.
