Oh Happy Days was dropped 9lb from her handicap debut in September and took advantage when reappearing in testing ground at Gowran. She's back up another 6lb here and this is her first start on Polytrack. FLUIDITY didn't run badly on three occasions here last season and reappeared with a very good run at Gowran where he may have been unfortunate not to have won after missing the break. He looks the one to beat though Elusive In Paris has become a real specialist on the track and is still well enough weighted despite a 6lb rise for his victory over 7f earlier this month. Zahr Alyasmeen was four lengths behind the latter on that occasion but is 8lb better off which should enable him to get much closer along with Top Man Michael, who was only just behind on his handicap debut.
