Feelin Foxy has won her last two starts over C&D beating Grudge and Absa Lutte in the process. She looks likely to make another bold bid from the front off a 4lb higher mark, but may end up providing BREATHLESS KISS with the fast pace she needs to show her best. Kevin Ryan's filly swooped late off a strong gallop to win at this track on her penultimate start and a similar outcome is expected here. Ray Of Joy has won four times here over 6f but along with Mo Mhuirnin may find things happening a bit quick over today's trip, though Stratton Banker is not without a chance as he pulled much too hard on his latest start here a month ago.
