MOMENT IN TIME stands out in this on her latest second to the progressive Boonga Roogeta at Bath. The latter has since gone in again and David Simcock's filly need only reproduce her effort at Bath to come out best. Dancing Primo looks in the handicapper's grip now and Norfolk Sky has also struggled since landing a couple of races on the Polytrack over the winter. Saint Helena is looking to end a barren spell but a decent third on her reappearance at Kempton suggests she'll be winning soon and she makes more appeal than The Blue Dog and Catawallow.
