The trip should suit Shaiyzar, who looked to have made rapid strides from bumpers to maiden company when just failing to overhaul Shes No Joke a couple of weeks ago. He was very well supported despite showing little in bumpers and should make enough progress to get into the frame. Palace Of Winds looked destined for better things when twice runner-up on Turf but she didn't appear at ease on this surface earlier this month. Voice Of A Curlew has gone well on her last two starts on Turf and Jessica Harrington's filly won't be fazed by another trip to this track, where she made her debut a year ago. She should get involved though it's HOE HOE, who really caught the eye on her debut behind Snow Scene here a month ago, who should make enough progress to take this.
