HIGH CLOUD LASS (2) has been runner-up at her past 5 starts in succession, beaten no further than a head in any of the past 3 starts. In a similar contest here 2 starts back she started fav and worked hard in the run and dug in for the fight. A safe beginner she can find the front here and look to control.
ASTRAL RULER (7) was making good ground in the closing stages last week to get within 10m of the winner after starting from a 30m impost. He has been campaigning well without landing a blow and back to the triangle where his record is a win and a 2nd from 2 attempts, he can be right in the mix.
