Indian Affair has been placed on several occasions but is thoroughly exposed, as is Kwanto who has already run five times here, but Lady Of The Vine can improve on her debut fifth at Newmarket and looks the main danger to GALLENA. Willie Haggas' filly was beaten less than a length by Senator Bong in a big field at Nottingham nine days ago and can go one better here. With Don Marco an absentee, Uganda Glory may be best of the rest though the drop in distance is a bit of a worry.
