Verdict

Godolphin's new trainer Charlie Appleby is represented by the newcomer Expressly. A half-sister to the high-class Rio De La Plata, she's worth closely monitoring in the betting but Andrew Balding has lined-up a strong team for today's card and INTERNATIONAL LOVE is one of them. She just failed to catch the winner at Chepstow last time but finished a couple of lengths clear of a subsequent maiden winner and any further progress can see her off the mark. Candy Kitten's second to Lunette at Salisbury looks better now with the latter winning at Chepstow on Friday but the more exposed Icon Dance was engaged to run at Lingfield yesterday. Syrenka makes most appeal of the remainder on her reappearance.
