REYAMOUR scored over hurdles in November and over 1m2f on her return to the Flat at Salisbury last month. She came here for her handicap debut on the level and gained such an impressive success that a 5lb rise doesn't look enough to prevent a hat-trick. Kenyan Cat was in tremendous form at this time a year ago when she won twice over 1m2f here. She will have no problems staying the extra and looks a big threat. Al Baidaa has come up against some smart types in her three maiden runs and makes her handicap debut from a lowly mark while Mark Johnston won this a year ago so Danube River is one to note as she steps up in trip. Bon Allumage scored at Wolverhampton before a poor run when stepped into Listed company at Newmarket and this looks more her class.
