BALTI'S SISTER can be forgiven her latest poor effort in heavy ground at Yarmouth. She'd been in fine form on the Polytrack before that, winning over C&D on her penultimate start and gets the nod to go in again. Graylyn Valentino has claims on his win over a longer trip here in August while both Fortrose Academy and Green Mitas have been placed over C&D recently and could also figure. M J Woodward's recent victory came over 5f in soft ground and the lightly-raced Menelik makes more appeal.
