BALLYHEIGUE won under today's amateur over track and trip last month. He's taken to go in again despite a 4lb higher mark. Frosty Berry ran well in similar company over 2m here last time. This shorter trip shouldn't be a problem as she scored over 1m4f before that when beating Rocky Two and Paul Midgley's mare can also reverse latest running with Hunters Belt. Golden Future can also figure having won an amateurs race at the track last season.
