Ziarah was a solid fourth in a C&D nursery when last seen and should be thereabouts on her reappearance but the vote goes to HESTERYA, who was too green to do herself justice at Newbury. Perfection, Teenage Gal and Allante are also respected.[Andrew Mount]

Beaten favourite on Polytrack both juvenile outings and only fourth at Wolverhampton on last month's comeback (7f); blinkers could help ahead of turf debut and no surprise to see her off the mark.

Only mid-division when strong in the market at Doncaster (6f, soft) but stall 1 rarely ideal for a newcomer and it took a while for the penny to drop; likely improver over this longer trip.

Promising fifth from off the pace over C&D on debut (7f, good to soft) but beat only a couple home at Wolverhampton on recent comeback (8.6f); return to this trip on turf could be the key but still prefer to look elsewhere.

Major improvement on second outing last autumn when 33-1 neck runner-up at Salisbury (7f, soft) and that form has been franked by winner; yard still not firing on all cylinders but quicker ground could suit and each-way claims.
