Brogans Bay has been well beaten off today’s mark since winning over track and trip with Come On Dave and Hurricane Alert behind. Sandfrankskipsgo won last year’s renewal and scored again here back in January while Mercers won here in December and the latter pair are both back on winning marks. But in a race of mainly exposed sprinters, PERFECT CHARM is preferred dropping down to the minimum trip for her handicap debut having attempted to make all over 6f and fading in the closing stages. She gets the vote with headgear applied and Oisin Murphy on board.
