A class six race over five furlongs on standard going. A 0-60 rated handicap with thirteen horses: ten gelding, two mares and one filly. Three horses have been known to lead. One of them is the top weighted Irish Girls Spirit, which has won its last two races. Its last victory saw it lead all the way. Even though it's top weight this race looks harder than its last win at Hamilton. Also, this is the horses debut on the all-weather. It won on good to firm, so this surface might not suit. With a few negatives - with the fact it's at the top of its game - it can't be denied. Dream Sika is my third top rated and a possible front runner. Being a three-year-old it could still have some improvement to come. Second top rated is Passionada, who likes to track the leaders and could be the one to benefit if the others take each other on at the front. My top rated is SPIC N SPAN 14/1 - who is the third possible front runner - and ideally drawn in stall one. Ron Harris' gelding ran a decent race last time out when second on grass so if the jockey Luke Morris gets this one to lead on the rails it could take some passing. At the prices, it has to be an each way bet.
