Nashville and Medieval Bishop are chasing hat tricks off higher marks after narrow margin victories on their latest starts. Pearl Spice will do better back over today's distance and the same comment applies to Sula Two. Body Language, Hawk Mountain and Rosairlie are others to consider while Flashman beat Rocktherunway here in July and has since finished behind fifth-placed EAGLE ROCK over track and trip. The latter also scored over course and distance earlier this season and gets the speculative vote dropped in class today.
