Verdict

The ground was fast when KODIVA made a very encouraging debut at Goodwood where she stayed on strongly after a slow start. She's the form pick on that run and should go one better, though today's conditions will be very different so a note of caution is sounded. After a promising start at Thirsk, Mystic And Artist was sent off favourite at Windsor but found the 25/1 chance Pixeleen too strong. The extra furlong here will help and she should go well. Both of Looking Good's races to date have been on soft going so she won't be inconvenienced by conditions though Multi Grain could prove more of a threat as she was always in the forefront over this trip at Newmarket and wasn't beaten far in a big field. Caius College Girl and the Irish raider Sarah Joyce are others to note in an interesting opener.
