Successful at 6f and 1m. Finished 10l behind Jagger Baby when fourth of 7 at 40-1 on her latest outing at Mountaineer Park over 6f last month. May struggle again.

Miss Holiday historical data/form

With Wings has been knocking on the door and is likely to be in the shake-up again, while Holiday Bid warrants respect following her 12/1 victory over slightly further here. The vote, however, goes to SWEET BAYTOWN, who bolted up at this level before failing to menace in much better company last time. She ought to go close back down in class.

A J's Mojo historical data/form

THATLOOKONYERFACE stepped up on a couple of solid placed efforts when scoring gamely over 6f at Presque Isle Downs and, with that confidence booster under his belt, he is fancied to complete the double. Smoltz and Icy Interlude could put up most resistance.

Bond is the least exposed of these and merits consideration, but preference is for JOE SPECS, who made a brave attempt at completing the double two weeks ago and he may well improve for that first outing since June. Salute And Serve holds each-way claims having his sights lowered.
