Allowed to dominate when bagging handicaps at Lingfield and Doncaster in May/June. However, limitations seemingly exposed the last twice and she's plenty high enough in the weights now.

Verdict

Nkosikazi will arrive full of confidence following her Redcar romp but this is tougher, while turf debutant Fountain Of Time must enter calculations having been narrowly denied the hat-trick at Chelmsford. However, RED STARLIGHT signed off her juvenile campaign with a win and she hasn't done a great deal wrong in three starts since returning, finishing third either side of a comfortable C&D success. That track form will stand her in good stead and she rates the one to beat.

Verdict

It's hard to resist the allure of the unexposed Godolphin filly FOUNTAIN OF TIME, who lost little caste in defeat when surrendering her unbeaten status at Chelmsford last time. She should have more to offer now switched to turf. With Hunni and Marilyn both engaged at Yarmouth on Thursday, Daddies Girl and Morning Has Broken can fill the places.
