STARDRIFTER has looked in need of the experience on both starts to date on soft ground at Haydock and though quickly dropped into plating company she is one of the few with scope and may be good enough now tackling quicker ground. Reet Petite has been well beaten in all three starts at this level and is unlikely to improve, though she is fitted with blinkers for the first time, while Proved You Wrong dropped away quickly after an early lead at Ripon, also in plating class. Rutland Panther has also been well beaten in this grade and Sunhill Lodge Lady weakened quickly in a claimer over the minimum trip here last time. The newcomer Monsieur Rouge has plenty of pace in his pedigree and cost £24,000 as a yearling so it's a surprise to see him operating at this lowly level
