Koharu had been threatening to open her account and finally did so over 6f here earlier this month. Placed over track and trip previously, she has decent claims again. PERFECT MISSION is another recent winner and, given he escapes a penalty for landing an apprentices race at Salisbury last week, it could pay to stick with Andrew Balding's charge. Hawk Moth won over a mile before a poor effort over today's trip at Chepstow while Flavius Victor and Uprise are others looking to put recent below-par efforts behind them.
