Timeform on Spike Wells

#1 Bright Flame - Flamingo Park R6 (13:25 GMT)

Bright Flame won twice at this course last year and ran just as well when third here earlier this month. He has a good record at this track and must be taken seriously in this contest. Roquebrune and Olofberg have both run well recently and look the most likely dangers.

#2 Spike Wells - Flamingo Park R7 (14:05 GMT)

Spike Wells turned in a career best when winning a handicap at this course by seven-and-a-half lengths earlier this month, taking his form to a new level, and sets the bar high in this contest. Keanan's Rock looks the pick for second, while Manaftermidnight is another with solid place claims.

#9 Hazel Eyes - Flamingo Park (14:40 GMT)

Hazel Eyes got off the mark with a dominant performance here in November and, though she ran below form on her latest outing, she should take plenty of beating if arriving in peak condition. Regal Ruby has a good chance on the pick of her form and shades the vote for second, while Kildonan Princess is another to bear in mind for the minor prize money.
