Formscan - Narrowly denied a hat-trick at Ayr, RUBY ISLAND can gain compensation in loftier company, having proven herself over this trip and with conditions in her favour. A mark of 118 on her handicap debut looks reasonable and she is narrowly preferred to easy Sedgefield winner Aubis Walk and Energy One, who was impressive at Ludlow. Just under a length separated Ilovethenightlife (first) and Moviddy (second) when they met at Doncaster and both have to enter the reckoning again.
