Swiss Pride finished just ahead of Kwela when runner-up in a claimer here last time and that pair are hard to separate while Jungle Juice has been thereabouts recently having slipped back down the handicap. Fancy Flyer’s earlier success at Lingfield came over 7f and Lorna Cole has placed over the minimum trip recently but Turn To Rock can do better back over today’s distance. ALICIA DARCY has been competing in higher grade sprints since winning at Brighton in August and Archie Watson’s filly gets another chance dropping down to this level.
