DISCAY has won two handicaps over this trip on fast ground recently and was carrying a huge weight when failing to overhaul King Of Paradise at Hamilton. The remainder were in another parish and Mark Johnston's charge can get back on the winning trail. Aryizad looks a major threat after his victory at Newcastle though he appeared to appreciate the softer ground on that occasion. New Youmzain looked promising last season and will be better for last week's reappearance though he probably needs further. Good Speech found 1m6f on soft ground beyond her at Carlisle and this is more her trip and ground.
